The research is multidisciplinary (chemical, biological, mathematical) and ranges from laboratory research (detailed process studies) to model studies to field studies. The group’s multidisciplinary expertise comes together in the development of integrated models for ecosystem and water quality management.

New insights are integrated into the chair group’s teaching as much as possible, which means that our education is constantly evolving. In addition to innovations in content, our teaching is also constantly evolving in order to transfer knowledge in the best possible way and allow students to gain knowledge. All courses at Wageningen University are taught in English, which is also the lingua franca at our research institutes.
