Chair
Environmental Sciences; Spatial ecology and Global change
Date of appointment 01.01.2010
Inaugural lecture date 28.04.2011
Profile
Full professor Spatial Ecology and Global Change at Utrecht University, The Netherlands.
 
My research and teaching is about Ecology, Environmental Sciences, and current topics on Global Change and Ecosystems. I am also the coordinator of the research Master "Environmental Change and Ecosystems", which is part of the Master Programme "Sustainable Development".
 
My research concentrates on Spatial Ecology and Global Change. 
 
Ecosystems self-organize into spatial patterns, demonstrating a characteristic of complex systems. In complex systems, structures at larger scales emerge spontaneously from processes operating at smaller scales. Understanding and modelling these processes enables us to interpret such signals of spatial self-organization in terms of ecosystem’s resilience, tipping points, and its likelihood of critical transitions toward alternate assemblages, guided by new rules and different processes.  Also, our research shows that processes and feedbacks at disparate spatial scales are linked, implying feedbacks between ecosystems and the climate. This is important in the light of global change, because human survival depends on services provided by ecosystems.
 
My research has been published in more than 90 articles in international refereed scientific journals, including top journals such as Nature and Science.
