Paulien Herder

From 1 September 2019 to 1 September 2023, Paulien Herder is serving as a member of Hotelschool The Hague’s board of trustees.

Herder is currently a full professor in energy systems at the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE) at Delft University of Technology. Paulien is also director of the Delft Energy Initiative, which is a portal for about 1,000 energy researchers on the Delft campus.

I am delighted to be appointed to the Hotelschool The Hague’s board of trustees. The school boasts strong educational values and education leadership in the hospitality business, and this aligns well with how I have approached my research and teaching at TU Delft in my field. In addition, I look forward to sharing my expertise and knowledge on building strong multidisciplinary research programmes with impact. I anticipate exciting times in close collaboration with the board, staff, students and my fellow board members.’
