Profile

Maarten obtained his MSc degree at Wageningen University where he studied soil-water-atmosphere, with focus on modelling soil processes. After this he moved to the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena, Germany, where he worked for 7 years, mainly on modelling soil organic carbon dynamics. It was there where Maarten completed his PhD project, which he defended at Wageningen University early 2014. Since August 2014 he is working at the Environmental Sciences group of the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development of Utrecht University for the Global Water Cycling Modelling project. He is working on modelling nitrogen cycling in terrestrial ecosystems and leaching to ground- and surface water.

His expertise lies mainly with developing dynamic and mechanistic models of biogeochemical and transport processes in soil and vegetation. He’s particularly interested in mathematical techniques to combine such models with observations in order improve, calibrate, and evaluate them. More recently he also became interested in more data driven modelling approaches, such as neural networks, and how these can be used to complement process models.
