Dr. De Jong works at the Harbour, Coastal and Offshore Engineering department of Deltares as Expert Advisor on hydrodynamics related to coastal infrastructure. In addition, he is coordinator of the Deltares Program ‘Infrastructure for waterborne transport’, which deals with consultancy and research related to the operational use of ports, inland waterways and hydraulic structures. He has an MSc in hydraulic engineering and a PhD in fluid mechanics.

dr. De Jong has over twenty years of professional experience in civil engineering and harbour and coastal projects. As Expert Advisor he consults on hydrodynamic topics related to layout designs (wave penetration, currents and vessel-induced water motions), movable storm surge barriers, and nautical activities in and around ports (manoeuvring, mooring). Besides his own main technical fields of expertise, dr. De Jong has supervised several interdisciplinary projects involving large infrastructure developments. In these projects the topic of sustainability and minimising and mitigating negative impacts has an increasingly large role. This makes that dr. De Jong has a broad technical profile and can advise on many technical topics related to the design, operation and impacts of large infrastructural works.
