My background is in environmental policy, where I developed a specific interest in citizen participation and the study of ‘local’ or ‘lay’ perspectives on nature and landscape. These research interests continue to this day, for instance in work I’ve done on place attachment and the human-nature relationship.

My main research line concerns nature-oriented citizen science and other forms of green volunteering. My PhD research drew on quantitative methods to investigate the profile, motivations and experiences of Dutch green volunteers. Currently I carry out qualitative research into the potential of ornithological citizen science to foster environmental citizenship.
