Creative and innovative applied researcher in sustainable agriculture. I wish to contribute to the sustainable development of agriculture in such a way that also on the long term we can still produce food. This in combination with other ecosystem services like maintaining biodiversity and watermanagement. My work combines sustainability on different scales: field, farm and total food chain. Focus areas are: soil management and climate change mitigation and adaptation. These are in my view the main threats for future food production. Main projects and programs I am involved in are in the field of resilient farming systems, sustainable soil management, sustainable food systems and organic agriculture.
