I am a marine microbiologist by training but have mainly focussed on how (scientific) information can be better used to guide policy decisions and ultimately marine governance. For me, this includes the participation of as many involved stakeholders as possible to co-create ideas and jointly develop a roadmap for the sustainable use of marine resources.
I have now succesfully worked with a wide range of stakeholders, including the maritime industry, NGOs and both scientific/intergovernmental istitutions.
