I am an agricultural economist who is interested in how risk management can enhance the resilience of European farms and farming systems. During my PhD, I investigated how European farm resilience can be quantified and if farmers are short- and long-term viable. Further research interests include behavioural and perception-based approaches, such as how learning can help farmers to become more resilient and the relationship between objective and subjective resilience of farms. Currently, I am a postdoc at the Business Economics group (Wageningen University & Research), who is partly employed by the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering.
I believe that truly understanding resilience requires insights from interdisciplinary research. The 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering is a promising initiative to unite researchers from different disciplines to learn from each other and to help to develop interdisciplinary views on complex social-ecological systems, both on both general and specified resilience. I am happy to join the 4TU Centre for Resilience Engineering and look forward to all future collaborations.
