I work in the Seal Rehabilitation and Research Centre Pieterburen in the Netherlands, as the strandingcoordinator.

I studied Animal (wildlife) management and focused most of my studies on behaviour of animals in rehabilitation centres. I studied seals in the Netherlands and Neotropical otters and Amazonian manatees in the Peruvian Amazon.
The mass observations of insects were for my thesis studying the health of a local agricultural landscape called the Noardlike Fryske Wâlden.

Other than working I enjoy traveling a lot, trying to explore every part of the world. During procrastinating I enjoy going through Phocidae ID's.
