Throughout my career I have been working on natural hazards and land degradation, fascinated by creating models that simulate these processes. Starting with biomass and grazing capacity in Afrika, followed by the effects of logging on the rain forest water balance, I moved to soil erosion and land degradation processes as a result of land use management and overgrazing. From there I became interested in extreme events leading to natural disasters, not only in rural but also in urban envrironments. I strongly believe that these processes should not be studied and modeled as separate disciplines but in a much more holistic way than we currently do. In the context of Natural Disasters stakeholders are confronted with domino and compounding effects multiple hazards. I think science has to be useful for society and my aim is to provide timely and actionable spatial information in disaster preparedness, prevention and response.
