About me

I’m a weathering scientist, with an interest in semi-arid environments. Over the past years I have worked on a number of projects including the influence of moisture on surface deterioration and its consequences for rock art in South Africa, the impact of bullet holes on monument conservation (ongoing), and now tackling the complexities of weathering in Arctic environments.

Originally from the Netherlands I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Geography from Durham, and obtained an MSc in Environmental Geomorphology and a DPhil (Geomorphology) at Oxford University. Currently I work at Cardiff University in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences where I teach, amongst other subjects, GIS and statistics, in addition to teaching part of the Heritage and Conservation Science module at Oxford University.
