Guest researcher

I am a PhD student working in the framework of the EcoPotential project. 

The aim of my PhD study is to deliver a range of practical tools to describe the environmental quality statu of Protected Areas, in conjunction with (changes in) ecosystem functions and ecosystem services. This will be done through the development and application of a combination of environmental as well as socio-economic descriptors, in order to obtain insight in the requirements of current and future novel PA, with a focus on the Dutch coastal zone.
