I am originally from The Netherlands where I grew up and studied wildlife management at Van Hall Larenstein, University of Applied Sciences (B.Sc. - 1996). I obtained my Masters in Geographic Information Science at the University of Minnesota (USA) (MGIS - 2002) and my PhD in Geography at Queen's University (PhD - 2015). Currently, I am a post-doctoral fellow at Queen's University within the AWARE project.

Research Interests:

My research focus and interests are on the estimation of ecological and inventory variables (e.g. succession, species composition and diameter distribution) of forest ecosystems using remotely sensed data sources such as ALS (airborne laser scanning) and high spatial resolution optical imagery. Why and how remotely sensed data are related to forest variables is a main question in my current research project as well as the transferability of RS based forest variable models.
