Biography

As a marine ecologist I am interested in the functioning and conservation of the underwater world. As a scuba diver I know how special the North Sea is, and as a scientist, I have a knowledge of how the system works and which enormous datasets and expertise we have available to answer questions. At Wageningen Marine Research I work as a project manager and researcher. I work mainly on projects related to conservation of biodiversity in the North Sea. They are about marine protected areas at sea (Natura 2000), the implementation of the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive, on indicators for measuring biodiversity, and much more. Much of my work is for the Ministry of Economic Affairs, but I'm also active internationally as a member of the ICES Working Group on Biodiversity and within the EU project BENTHIS. In recent years I have also focussed on protected areas in the oceans (outside the EEZ), marine spatial planning, invasive species, seals and more, and I joined different field trips in the North Sea and Wadden Sea.

Biodiversity of the Saba Bank. In 2019 an expedition will take place to the Saba Bank. A summary of previous research can be found in: Bos OG, Becking LE, Meesters HWG (2016) Saba Bank: Research 2011-2016 (http://edepot.wur.nl/400225). Wageningen Marine Researc

Borkumse Stenen: De Borkumse Stenen is een gebied ten noorden van Schiermonnikoog waar we de afgelopen jaren onderzoek hebben gedaan aan de bodemstructuur en de biodiversiteit. Er blijken velden met  zwerfkeien en stenen te liggen met een rijke biodiversiteit. Voor rapporten hierover: zie http://edepot.wur.nl/240319,  en http://edepot.wur.nl/313494.
