Large-scale Soil Erosion Modeling

Published on: June 13, 2019

Recently, I have published a few articles on the impact of climate change on water security and potential adaptation strategies. The backbone of these articles is the SPHY model we have developed over the last few years. In this blog post I will tell how we developed the model and how we applied the model to the Segura catchment. Please check out all related articles in the Publications section. In 2015 I started as a postdoctoral researcher at the Soil and Water Conservation Research Group…

3d Illustrations for Scientific Articles

Published on: December 8, 2018

In one of my latest publications I took some of my illustrations to the next level. I used 3D software to illustrate some of the key aspects of the soil erosion model I have developed. In this blog post I will tell some about the software I used and some experience I got with making 3D illustrations. In almost every article I have written so far, I try to include a figure to illustrate some key aspects or conclusions of the study. These kind of figures are called explanatory diagrams, but I will…

Making Science Videos

Published on: October 20, 2018

In this blog post I want to tell some about why and how I started to make science videos. I started making videos about a year ago and have made 4 videos up to now. Please check out these videos in the Videos section. About 1 year ago I run into the EGU’s Communicate Your Science Competition, where early career scientists can submit videos, with the aim to communicate their research to a wider audience. After watching some of these videos I was thinking: “How hard can it be?”…

How I made this website

Published on: August 25, 2018

Welcome to my blog! In this first blog post I want to tell you how I made this awesome website. I won’t go into the finest details, but will tell you about the experience I got with the tools I used to make this website. I will start with a brief history of my experience in web design. I started getting interested in web development in the period between I finished my PhD and started as a postdoctoral researcher. Through some online courses (mainly from Udemy) I learned some basic HTML,…
