In 1999, Marian Bosch-Rekveldt obtained her master's degree in mechanical engineering at Twente University. After seven years of working as a project engineer and project manager at TNO, she joined the Delft Centre for Project Management in 2006 and started a PhD research titled "Managing project complexity: a study into adapting early project phases to improve project performance in large engineering projects", defended in 2011. 

As an associate professor in the Infrastructure Design and Management group at the faculty Civil Engineering and Geoscience of Delft University of Technology, she is involved in education (BSc, MSc and professional education, on campus as well as online) and research in the field of project management of large (infrastructure) projects. Her research focusses on managing complexity and the development of fit-for-purpose project management to create value in projects. Knowing that people are key, investigating collaboration is one of her key interests.
