I am working as a postdoc in the "Global Water Cycle Modelling" project, investigating the impact of anthropogenic changes to the global water cycle. I use the global hydrological model PCR-GLOBWB to investigate the role of three aspects of anthropogenic changes: land cover, climate and water redistribution such as irrigation or dams. We aim to study the relative and combined roles of these changes on the global hydrological cycle.

My PhD-project concerned the effect of orbital variations on Earth's climate. The orbit of the Earth around the Sun is affected by other planets, and therefore undergoes small changes. These changes cause significant variations in the spatial and temporal distribution of the solar radiation received by the Earth. I used a climate model, EC-Earth, to investigate how climate of the tropics (especially monsoons) responds to these orbital-induced changes in incoming solar radiation. I collaborated with geoscientists of Utrecht University as well as climate scientists of KNMI.
