Biography

I joined the Internet Society in March 2011. Prior to joining, I was Chief Technical Officer of RIPE NCC, responsible for the company's IT strategy, including the management of one of the DNS root servers, K-root.

I bring more than 20 years of experience in the Internet technical community, and I'm actively following Regional Internet Registry (RIR) and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) activities. In 2010-2012 I was a member of the Internet Architecture Board (IAB).

My primary area of interest is security and resilience of the Internet infrastructure, bridging technology and policy. This work is based on active engagement with the operator, research, and policy communities. I was instrumental in creating an industry-led initiative called Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS) and the development of its programs. I am also one of the main contributors to the Internet Impact Assessment Toolkit (IIAT), which was developed and promoted by the Internet Society.

I'm based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
