My primary research interest is (regional) sea-level change as a consequence of climate change. I like to take a broad approach and study both global and regional sea-level change, include as many contributions as possible and look both at the recent past (20th century) and at projecting future changes for 21st century and beyond. At NIOZ my research focuses on understanding and projecting (regional) sea-level changes, and on translating these to the coastal/delta/estuarine environment.
I started at the NIOZ Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research in January 2017 as a tenure track researcher. Within the Department of Estuarine & Delta Systems (EDS) I am responsible for the research with a focus on sea-level change, both in the open ocean and at the coast. I am also part of the NIOZ Sea Level Centre of expertise. I am a lead author on the forthcoming IPCC AR6 report, on the chapter on Oceans, Cryosphere and Sea Level Change. Before coming to NIOZ, I did a PhD at IMAU (Utrecht University, The Netherlands) and postdocs at CSIRO Ocean and Atmosphere (Hobart, Australia) and IMAU.
