Personal profile

Research expertise

I am a marine ecologist interested in how large mobile marine top predators - notably marine mammals - interact with marine industries such as marine renewables, aquaculture, and fisheries.

The main focus of my work is improving status assessment methods and resolving small-scale habitat usage patterns.

Education/Academic qualification

Doctor of Science

Master of Biology, University of Groningen
