The main focus of my work is applying environmental systems analysis approaches to the field of water and health. With my group, based at the Environmental Systems Analysis Group at Wageningen University we have initiated and are developing the Global Waterborne Pathogen (GloWPa) model that estimates Cryptosporidium and Rotavirus emissions to surface water worldwide and should soon be a validated model for concentrations in surface water. We plan to use the model in scenario analyses and microbial risk assessment. Other projects, that also link in with the bigger project, are mostly focussed on global change impacts on waterborne pathogens and disease. Quantification of these impacts is still lacking and we fill this gap with modelling approaches. For more details on the research projects and my teaching, browse this website!
