RESEARCH AREA

In my research, I study how we can unravel the impact of climate change, sea level change and tectonic motions on the evolution and composition of the Dutch subsurface, including its aggregates and groundwater resources, and the archeological record.

RECENT RESULTS

New insights into the recent natural and induced tectonic activity in the southern Netherlands and its impacts on the landscape and hydrogeology.
