Nice that you are interested in the Solar Boat Team! My interest was also sparked by the Hydro Motion project. My name is Esmée Gajadin and this year I am involved in Public Relations & Exposure, together with my teammates.
My interest in sustainable technologies in the energy sector has grown strongly in recent years. This started during my bachelor Science, Business & Innovation at the VU University Amsterdam and continued to grow in my master Complex Systems Engineering & Management at Delft University of Technology, where I focus on the socio-technical part of the energy transition. I am especially interested in a possible hydrogen future and overcoming barriers to achieve this. What I like about the Hydro Motion project is that I can apply my theoretical knowledge in practice in a multidisciplinary team in which team members become good friends.
In my role as Public Relations & Exposure I form the bridge between acquisition and exposure. I will support the financial manager by being in close contact with partners in order to make them feel as involved as possible. In addition, I strengthen the exposure team by focusing on providing regular updates to everyone interested in our project. With this I hope to transfer my own enthusiasm for the energy transition and hydrogen as a part of it to others and to be able to contribute to accelerating the energy transition!
