Team Lead Consulting

Why did you choose Quintel Intelligence?

In a couple of decades I want to be able to look back upon a successful energy transition to which I was able to contribute. I think working at Quintel Intelligence will lead me to this goal.

What do you respect in people?

Curiosity, intrinsic motivation, originality, kindness, cleverness, wittiness and many more characteristics.

What drives you crazy?

Wasting time on something which is inefficient or unimportant. But don’t get me wrong, I’m not running around all day. For example I think spending a summer night on my balcony looking at the sunset, is excellent use of time.

What is your favorite quote?

“I'm not trying to defend it, I'm trying to make it understandable.”

This statement was uttered by Joop Doorman following someone exclaiming “Joop, you cannot defend this!”.

Joop Doorman made the ethics course obligatory at Delft University of Technology. In his opinion engineers without ethical awareness are a danger to society.
