About

Welcome.

I’m Alexander van Tuyll, an MSc student in biosystems engineering at Wageningen University. I am interested in applying ecosystems thinking to indoor agriculture. In this way, waste can become food again – connecting resource management to human health by using ecosystems.

This blog is a documentation of this adventure. It includes articles – both broad and detailed – on circular agriculture and indoor farming, summaries of books and webinars, and some of my own personal experiences.

I have been a volunteer at the Association for Vertical Farming and a participant in Wageningen University’s Greenhouse Challenge, as part of team Green Spark. At the moment, I am doing my MSc thesis on using genetic algorithms to optimise greenhouse climate control.

Hope my writings are of value to you!
