Biography

I'm specialised in the development and coordination of citizen science networks. The main network is the Dutch phenological network Nature's Calendar (www.natuurkalender.nl) that aims to monitor, analyse, predict and communicate the timing of life cycle events like e.g. the start of flowering, appearance of butterflies and the arrival of migratory birds. Nature's Calendar network aims to help society to adapt to climate change ecological impacts. Other examples of citizen science networks that I set up are the Mosquito Radar (www.muggenradar.nl), Allergy Radar (www.allergieradar.nl), Tick Radar (www.tekenradar.nl), Splashteller and the GrowApp (www.growapp.today).

Furthermore, I'm specialized in communicating science to society. I'm coordinating the nature news website NatureToday.com where over fifteen nature organisations publish two nature reports per day on current developments in nature in The Netherlands. We aim to bring nature into the news domain to increase the interest of society in nature.
