Some years ago I came up with the idea to develop the GloWPa model. And this website shows all the additional activities that came up in the mean time. I have now built up this group of PhD and MSc students who have all contributed to where we are with the modeling today. Three professors have been very important for the progress. Prof. Gertjan Medema has been involved from the start and I strongly rely on his expertise in microbiology. Prof. Rik Leemans has given me all the freedom and support to develop my own research line. Prof Carolien Kroeze has helped with her expertise in global water quality modelling. I am very fortunate to have their support.
