Soil sensing and soil information specialist

At ISRIC, Fenny works on soil data exchange standards, soil sensing standardisation and application options. She participates in and leads European projects (EJP SOIL, SoilWise, BENCHMARKS, and more) and initiatives (IUSS SIS WG, GSP) and facilitates cooperation with Wageningen Environmental Research, where she works part-time. Her main role is often to spot and create synergies between projects, initiatives, organisations and people on these topics.

Fenny is a soil sensing scientist with an MSc. in Soil Inventory and Land Evaluation and an MSc. in Geo-Information and Remote Sensing (2005) from Wageningen University, the Netherlands. After graduation, she worked at The Soil Company and Medusa Explorations. These two small Dutch companies apply proximal soil sensing techniques for local mapping in (precision) agriculture, archaeology, (environmental) soil, road construction, and sediments. 

Fenny speaks English, Dutch and Spanish.
