I am Associate Professor in Digital Soil Science at the Soil Geography and Landscape group, Wageningen University, The Netherlands. I am an expert in spatial and temporal modelling of soil-landscape and land use systems for understanding large-extent soil and ecosystem dynamics. In addition, I specialize in the development of soil sensing techniques for monitoring changes in soil functions and soil health. I was chair of the IUSS Pedometrics Commission for the period 2018-2022 and currently general board member of the Dutch Soil Science Society. I am associated editor of the European Journal of Soil Science and Frontiers in Soil Science. I am actively involved in various European and national research projects aimed at mapping and monitoring soils and soil health for a sustainable future. I am highly motivated to make a positive impact with my work to society. With my work, I provide crucial knowledge and information to combat the climate and biodiversity crises and create food security. I support society in the transition towards a sustainable society for future generations, by delivering social, economic and technological benefits for nature and society.
