Senior Research Software Engineer

Peter Kalverla


Peter has a background in meteorology. Pursuing his interest in the natural environment, he initially enrolled in a broad BSc programme on “soil, water, and atmosphere” and later specialized in the latter. This interdisciplinary background proves very useful in his current position as RSE in the Environment and Sustainability section, where he has led several projects revolving around geospatial problems. Peter is very passionate about open science and collaborative research software development. Engineering-wise, he is particularly interested in software solutions that enable a more accessible and transparent research process.

Peter joined the Netherlands eScience Center in 2019 to develop his software engineering skills, learn about digital technologies, and contribute to open science.
