Interesses de investigação

1) Application of novel biomolecular techniques to study natural and man-made environments (ecology and biotechnology).

2) Study of the structural and functional patterns of microbial communities in different ecosystems, plants and animal hosts.

3) Investigate the potential of marine microbes (including symbionts) for use in the biotechnology industry and to search for new medicines.

4) Multidisciplinary assessment of marine ecosystems exposed to anthropogenic contaminants and influence of global change.

Short history

Principal researcher of Marine and Estuarine Ecology. I studied biology at the University of Amsterdam. During my study I spent half a year in the Caribbean where I studied aggressive interactions among coral species. After this I spent a year in France at the Université de Provence. For my PhD (also in Amsterdam), I spent two and a half years in the jungles of Borneo, mainly studying butterflies but I was also interested in many other organisms in the rainforest and how disturbances such as logging and forest fires affected them. After my PhD, I did postdocs in Amsterdam and Leiden. Author of more than 100 papers in leading international journals in the areas of Ecology, Tropical Biology and Marine Biology. Principal Researcher or team member of national and international research projects on terrestrial and marine ecology. Research advisor of several Msc students, PhD students and Postdocs. Has refereed several leading journals in the fields of ecology, conservation biology, zoology and marine biology. My major interests include corals, sponges, butterflies, odonates, microbial ecology, biostatistics (particularly using R) and relating community structure to spatial, environmental and temporal processes.
