Juul Kusters is a PhD student at the Department, Planning of the Faculty of Spatial Sciences, University of Groningen. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from University College Maastricht (2017), a Liberal Arts & Sciences Honours College. Within this bachelor program, she focused on sustainability, public policy and water management and also spent a semester following courses at Queen's University in Kingston, Canada. After spending this time in Maastricht, she moved to Oldenburg, Germany, to start the Double Degree Master program Water and Coastal Management. This program is offered by the University of Oldenburg in collaboration with the University of Groningen. In the second year, students follow the year-long program of Environmental & Infrastructure Planning to conclude the degree. She graduated with two Master of Science degrees (2020) cum laude with the thesis titled: "A monoculture of windfarms or a sea of possibilities? Exploring multi-use implementation as a solution for efficient ocean planning in the Dutch North Sea." As of November 2020 she is working as a PhD student researching potential allocation and accommodation of new forms of offshore energy storage and transport, in light of its uncertain environmental impacts, conflicing sea uses, and associated costs. The PhD is part of the larger DOSTA (Developing Offshore Storage and Transport Alternatives) project consortium, where it takes care of the work package on marine spatial planning, environmental impact and locational choice.
