Tessa is a consultant in Trinomics’ climate team. She holds a MSc degree in International Public Policy & Public Management from Erasmus University Rotterdam. For her thesis she assessed the climate finance effectiveness of the regulatory framework of the Green Climate Fund, for which she interviewed various stakeholders from contributing and recipient countries, civil society organisations and the private sector. After her studies, she interned in the climate team of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where she was involved in the drafting and negotiations of a Gender and Climate Action plan under the UNFCCC at COP23 as part of the EU-delegation.

Prior to joining Trinomics, she worked as a public procurement officer at the Dutch Government with a focus on sustainable procurement, from which she gained practical knowledge of the strategic objectives, operational processes and budgeting of public organisations, and their efforts to move towards climate neutrality.

Tessa is a native Dutch speaker, fluent in English and speaks French at an intermediate level.
