-Master Chemistry at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands (cum laude):
Main thesis: Using allometry to model the impact of tropospheric ozone on the extinction vulnerability of plant species.
Minor thesis: Artificial trees for the capture of carbon dioxide from ambient air.
Internship: Species distribution modelling of two pairs of interacting grassland species across Europe. Performed at the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL).
- Bachelor Chemistry at Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands:
Thesis: Uncertainties in modelling the chemical production and loss of nitrogen reservoirs in the lower troposphere. Written at the Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI)

Current project:
In my project I study the various ways to model/assess the impact of anthropogenic activities on our living environment. I focus on species based assessments such as species distribution models and demographic assessments. The goal of this research is to examine a variety of methods that can improve the species based assessments methods by including more ecological detail, increasing the geographical scale or finding ways to include more species.
