Consultant Resource Analysis (Delft, the Netherlands) (1998-2001)
- the impacts of changes in climate, land use and land management on soil and water resources and related ecosystem services
- the prediction and understanding of soil erosion and sediment yield from hillslopes to the catchment scale, based on modelling, field observations and measurements
- socio-ecological systems analysis to identify barriers and motivators for Sustainable Nature Based Solutions related to land degradation and climate change
- participatory action research, multistakeholder partnerships and development of sustainable business models.
