In my opinion, research benefits from education and vice versa. The topic of my research helps me to motivate students in their course work and theses. At the same time, teaching the topic of my research requires me to keep up to date on the latest news in the field and students' questions provide a new viewpoint. I really enjoy seeing students' motivation and eagerness to learn, in particular in individual assignments.

I coordinate and teach the Academic Consultancy Training (ACT) course Design of Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies in which students do a consultancy project for a commissioner from outside the university. This is a course that strongly motivates students and is a great opportunity for them to reflect on how they can bring what they have learned during their earlier studies in practice. I also provide lectures in the courses Modelling Future Water Stress, Chemical and Biological Resource Quality in Circular Economies and Introduction to Global One Health. I coordinate the Water Systems and Global Change education.

I supervise MSc and BSc students in their thesis. I prefer to supervise students on topics related to my projects and research field in general. Potential students can have a look at the possible thesis topics on water quality and health, or on large-scale river pollution. In case you are interested in a thesis in the field of water, climate and health, please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss opportunities. In many cases we can come up with a topic that fits my work and your interests.
