Research interests

 

As a marine biologist, I have strong interests in the taxonomy, ecology, evolution, biogeography, and conservation of reef corals and their associated biota. I obtained my MSc in marine biology from the University of Groningen (1984) and my PhD from Leiden University (1990). My studies on reef corals started during an internship at Naturalis Biodversity Centre (1983), which is my present employer. In June 2019, I was appointed honorary professor in tropical marine biodiversity at the RUG (Naturalis chair).
