I am a marine biologist with a strong interest in the interactions between biotic and abiotic processes.
My current research is focused on the role of benthic diatoms (microscopic algae living in and on the sediment) in intertidal ecosystems. Benthic diatoms provide an important food source for benthic fauna, which are in turn eaten by birds and fish. Using a combination of field data and satellite imagery, I aim to gain insight in the importance of benthic diatoms in structuring intertidal ecosystems on the macro scale.
