Welcome to my website. Here, you can find information about my current and past research, as well as some of my hobbies. On the news page you can find short posts with updates or media stories.
I am an animal ecologist interested in human-wildlife conflict in the broadest sense (including crop damage, zoonotic diseases, and traffic accidents). Currently, I work as a teacher in Wildlife Management at van Hall Larenstein University of Applied Sciences in Leeuwarden, I am a guest researcher at the Resource Ecology Group at Wageningen University, and I am involved in the work of the Dutch Small Mustelid Foundation.
Next to being a scientist, I am a musician in two folk bands, I like to dance, read, and write, and I take the occasional photograph.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
