Sacha is a bit like an otter, he likes to float in clean water, with his laptop on his belly. In time, he dives deep into the world of water quality, stakeholder communication and data/model analysis. Out of the water, he’s a born cyclist, cheerful and seemingly unworried about your bike gear-ratio.
Niels De Vleeschouwer
Niels focuses on modeling and how to enhance the predictions by integrating observations along the way. He loves that moment, mostly at the end of a long day of debugging, when a dull chunk of code comes alive and produces somewhat realistic outputs. In another life Niels would have liked to become an elite discus thrower. That didn't work out physically.
