Sjoerd obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2014. As a next step, he pursued an MSc in Offshore and Dredging Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, developing a particular interest in fluid mechanics and dredging processes specifically. During his graduation thesis, published at the WODCON XXII in Shanghai, he focused on numerical modelling of water-sediment flow in order to enhance cable burial processes. Currently, he is working as Research and Development Engineer on cable installation and burial activities for DEME Offshore.
