During my PhD research at Delft University of Technology (2011–2014; cum laude), I have expanded the state-of-the-art view on the global hydrological cycle by showing the influence of land evaporation on land precipitation, termed moisture recycling. I have investigated different aspects, such as: length and time scales; oceanic, continental and local moisture sources; different methodologies; the role of different evaporation components. The atmospheric moisture tracking model WAM-2layers, which I developed during this period is now being used by a growing group of researchers, with most of whom I collaborate.

After my PhD, I have worked at Witteveen+Bos Consulting Engineers as a manager and hydrology & climate specialist.

Since April 2016 I work at Utrecht University. I have continued to do research on the global hydrological cycle, but now focusing on different aspects as during my PhD. I have written a paper about the residence time of water in the atmosphere for HESS. I am currently focusing on land surface hydrology and I am investigating global vegetation rooting strategies and rooting depth, by means of the calibration of the hydrological model PCR-GLOBWB.

Other research interests include land-atmosphere interactions, extreme rainfall and floods.
