Erik is a Senior Researcher at Wageningen University and Research. His research interests are coral reef ecology and applied statistics.
Within the project, he will be working on connecting large scale to small scale or from regional to local in terms of impacts, indices and biodiversity.
For Erik, impacts of pressures are too often studied in isolation, while we know that they are often connected and influence each other. His hope for MaCoBioS is to succeed in including to some degree interactions between pressures in their impacts on biodiversity.
