Stephanie is a climate adaptation researcher within the group “Water in and around the City” (WiodS) within the Centre of Expertise City Net Zero at Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences. She is currently working on three research projects -- Cool Towns, Effectief groen voor klimaatadaptatie in de stad, and, Nederland Wijktypologie (Klimaateffectatlas) v2.0.

Cool Towns aims to counteract the negative effects of climate change and find attractive solutions that make cities climate resilient. Within Cool Towns, Stephanie mostly works on advanced vulnerability mapping to identify vulnerable locations and routes for possible heat stress mitigation. Within Effectief groen voor klimaatadaptatie in de stad, she investigates, through ENVI-met modelling, which green interventions, at the street level, are the most effective at mitigating heat stress. And lastly within the Nederland Wijktypologie (Klimaateffectatlas) v2.0, Stephanie is working to improve the national neighborhood typology dataset which has the potential to be used in many national climate adaptation projects. Previously, she was the project manager for the CoolKit, a heat-resilient toolkit for designers of the public realm.

Before joining AUAS and WiodS, Stephanie worked for 9 years in professional practice as a landscape architect and urban planner/design in the Netherlands and United States. She is passionate about climate adaptation in public spaces and making cities more sustainable.

Stephanie holds a Master’s in Landscape Architecture from the University of Minnesota, College of Design and a Bachelor’s of Science from Iowa State University, College of Design, in Community and Regional Planning. During her studies, she focused on resilient public space design, sustainable cities, bottom-up urbanism, social justice, and public engagement.
