Lisa Verschuren is an urban water management expert with three years of working experience. She holds a BSc. in Systems Engineering, Policy and Management and a MSc. in Water Management from Delft University of Technology. During her study, she did research projects in Nepal on the use of citizen science for land use validation and rainfall in the Kathmandu valley. In addition, she applied novel remote sensing methods to investigate patterns of human response to riverine floods by quantifying the human footprint in flood prone areas using night-time light data.

Lisa is a water professional with strong client communication skills. She is detail oriented, output driven, and is always searching for new novel data sources and methods. After three years in urban drainage management, she decided to follow her passion by giving expert advice on environmental topics. With her experience and technical background, she is great at tackling any challenge.
