Over

I want to contribute to a more sustainable world through my research on the interface of microbial ecology and sustainable agriculture.

Biografie

After finishing my bachelor in Biology and master in Environmental Biology at Universiteit Utrecht, I started in January 2019 as a PhD candidate in the Microbial Ecology department at NIOO in the group of Paul Bodelier. My NWO-TTW Open Technology-funded project focuses on the occurrence and underlying mechanisms of organic residue-stimulated atmospheric methane uptake by agricultural soils.
