A love for technology brought Wouter from Belgium to Delft for a degree in Aerospace Engineering, specializing in human-machine interaction. This culminated in a half-year internship at the Humans & Automation Lab at MIT, Cambridge, where he led the final phase in the design of a decision support interface for the utility domain. After his studies he entered the high-potential traineeship at TNO and continued there as consultant until October 2016, when he made the switch to SparkOptimus. Here Wouter uses his experience in determining impact of innovation to carry out projects at the intersection of business strategy and cutting-edge technology. After working hours, Wouter enjoys cooking, skiing and field hockey.
