As TPA’s Evaluation Lead, Daan conducts research and evaluation projects to support continuous program development and strategic visioning. His journey was dynamic. In 2017, he flew across the Atlantic Ocean to volunteer at TPA and finish his Bachelors in European Studies. Within weeks, he was offered a permanent position at TPA and choose to kick start his career in America.
His curious nature took him all over the globe. But particularly his life in The Netherlands, Northeastern Spain, and The Pacific Northwest cultivated his fascination for how traces of history influence contemporary social injustice. Being emerged in different cultures and lifestyles has taught him to be adaptable. This trait has served him well when he accepted the challenge to formulate evaluation processes in the face of ambiguity.
Out of the office, you can find Daan designing and assembling furniture or enjoying the crisp mountain air.
