I am interested in a wide range of ecosystems that are wet and dominated by ecosystem engineers, such as salt marshes, intertidal osyter and mussel reeffs, and peatlands. My research focusses on the restoration of degraded ecosystems and the creation of novel ones. Specifically, I focus on the interplay between organisms and their physical and chemical environment. In 2020, I finished my PhD-thesis entitled "The Restoration of Wetlands Dominated by Habitat Modifiers".
Since the 1st of March 2021, I joined COS at the NIOZ for 4 days/week combined with a 1-day position at the Radboud University. At the NIOZ, my work focusses on the restoration of degraded coastal ecosystems that are typically dominated by ecosystem engineers using novel approaches (e.g. generating faciliation with temporarily biodegredable structures to enhance restoration success).
