It is a pleasure to announce that the bi-annual SENSE PhD Award for best SENSE dissertation in previous two years, has been awarded to dr. Brenden Jongman (see picture) for his PhD research on Unravelling the Drivers of Flood Risk across Spatial Scales (2015) at IVM, VU (with Prof. Jeroen Aerts, IVM as promotor and Dr. Philip Ward, IVM as co-promotor).
The awarding jury was Chaired by SENSE Director of Research, Prof. Max Rietkerk (Copernicus Institute, UU). Together with committee members Prof. Jacob de Boer (Head of Environment and Health, VU) and Dr. Maarten Krol (Dept. Water Engineering and Management, Twente University), the awarding jury’s choice was unanimous – even though the other nominated candidates have also produced excellent PhD dissertations.
