I am a physical geographer by training and I have a passion for science, teaching and time related processes. Currently, I am working as Assistant Professor (UD) in the Soil Geography and Landscape group (SGL) and at the Netherlands Centre for Luminescence dating (NCL) of Wageningen University. As a teacher I am coordinating a MSc course on geochronology entitled the 4th dimension in earth sciences and I lead a pre-MSc course on fundamentals of landscapes. Furthermore, I am teaching basics of soils and landscapes as part of five BSc programs at Wageningen University.
My research develops at the cross-roads of luminescence dating and new application within geomorphology and soil sciences. The ultimate goal is to quantify sedimentary and erosional processes in earth-surface and soil systems by harvesting intrinsic luminescence properties of natural mineral grains. Earth-surface and soil processes shape our planet and provide the basis for human infrastructure and food production. A quantitative understanding of soil and landscape processes (in 4 dimensions!) is vital to predict future changes and eventually help to develop sustainable land-use or hazard protection strategies for a more resilient future.
If you are also enthusiastic about this kind of research, suppose as part of a MSc thesis or research collaboration, please dont hesitate to contact me. For more information on my research activities and publications please visit my Google Scholar or Research Gate pages.
