Hi, I’m Maarten Pronk 👋. I'm a researcher at Deltares and an external PhD candidate in the 3dgeoinfo research group at the Delft University of Technology. I have earned a Master of Science degree in Geomatics with honors.

My research concerns elevation modelling, especially in lowlands prone to coastal flooding. I aim to combine my interests in remote sensing and software engineering for societal impact. Currently, I'm working on applying data from ICESat-2—a lidar satellite—on global elevation models.

I promote open and reproducible research, and I'm the author of several open-source software packages for handling geospatial data, written in the Julia programming language. In my free time I tinker with open data, but I also read, write, climb, boulder, mountaineer, and ride a motorbike.
