Career

Since 2005 I am an Associated researcher at Naturalis. I work on a PhD thesis concerning the Middle Pleistocene of the North Sea Basin. Furthermore I work on Eemian and Late Pliocene and Early Quaternary faunas from the Netherlands.

Research

Research interest

I am specialized in Pliocene and Quaternary marine and terrestrial faunas of the North Sea Basin. From 1976 until 2005 I worked at the Dutch Geological Survey (nowadays NITG-TNO). I was mostly dealing with biostratigraphy and palaeoecology of Dutch mollusk faunas.
