M (Merel) Kooi MScDocent
Merel holds a BSc in Soil, Water, Atmosphere and a MSc in Earth and Environment, both from Wageningen University & Research. She focussed on hydrology and aquatic ecology, by studing rainfall-runoff responses in basaltic catchments in her first MSc thesis and modelling the vertical transport of microplastics in oceans in her second thesis.
She is currently working in the TRAMP project (Technologies for the Risk Assessment of MicroPlastics). Within the project, her focus is on transport and fate modelling of the plastic particles in rivers.
