Marine researcher, photographer, diver
Welcome to my website! I am a marine ecologist passionate about sustainability, biodiversity, taxonomy and how human-induced changes are affecting marine ecosystems. For my PhD in marine ecology I investigated changes in gelatinous zooplankton (“jellyfish”) communities in Dutch coastal waters by analysing long-term datasets and performing field surveys as well as experiments.
I currently work at Royal NIOZ where I investigate the environmental impact of Blue Energy.
Experienced in organising research projects, research cruises and monitoring surveys, analysing long-term data, experiments, and species identification/taxonomy of benthos as well as zooplankton and fish. For more information please see my curriculum vitae and publications.
