Post-Doctoral Researcher / Junior Group Leader
My main research interest is to understand how species interactions influence the structure and functioning of plant-microbial communities. I got my PhD from Leiden University in the Institute of Environmental Sciences.
My previous work has focused on symbiosis between plants and mycorrhizal fungi, but is increasingly expanding to include other groups of organisms that are part of the soil foodweb in forest ecosystems. In my research I work across multiple scales from microcosm assays to field experiments.
