Curriculum vitae:

2008-2009 Data standards development for animal movement data, MPI for Ornithology, Germany

Oct 2008 MSc in Topmaster Evolutionary Biology, University of Groningen, The Netherlands

Sep 2006 BSc in Biology, Leiden University, The Netherlands

Research interests:

 My research focuses on animal movement; I'm looking for environmental and internal factors influencing how and where animals move. This includes changes from breeding to migratory movements and the influence of wind on migrations.
