I am an experimental marine ecologist working closely with the Dutch government, Wageningen Marine Research (WMR), Wageningen University (WUR), and the Institute for Agricultural and Fisheries Research (ILVO) to unravel the ecosystem effects of electric pulse fishing and beam trawling in the North Sea. Impacts of this controversial method on the functioning of ecosystems and their biogeochemistry are relatively unknown, yet it still may be a more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional beam trawling.  My research at the NIOZ aims to shed light on the possible consequences of electrical stimulation on marine habitats and to compare and contrast these with conventional methods.
