Marle works as a sustainability consultant for the Industries team, supporting organizations to become more sustainable. She sees systems thinking as the basis for a healthy ecosystem and explores how the power of data science and systems thinking act as interventions that create sustainable, out-of-the-box solutions to environmental challenges.
With a background in life cycle assessments, she previously worked in bio-based materials and biofuels. She has published scientific research about systems change in Dutch peatlands and the energy transition, where she assessed the environmental and economic potential of cattail as bio-insulation material to address land subsidence.
Growing up in the green surroundings of Amersfoort, countless hours outside in the vegetable garden and camping made her realize that the beauty of nature should not be taken for granted.
Marle obtained her bachelor’s degree in Future Planet Studies (University of Amsterdam) and a master’s degree in Sustainable Development (Utrecht University/Universität Leipzig) with a focus on energy and materials. She reads multiple books at the same time, and having previously worked in a library, she can be considered a true bookworm.
