Assistant professor at Wageningen UR, studying bacterial plant pathogens.

Underwater photographer


I work at Wageningen University, where I run the Bacteriology group of the laboratory of Phytopathology. My group studies the interaction between bacteria and plants.

What I do most besides my job is photography, scubadiving and studying marine organisms, especially crabs, and I often combine these things. I have specialised in crabs, and I also maintain a special crabs of the Netherlands website (

Images shot by me can be found at Vilda, a photostock agency of several Belgian and Dutch Nature photographers.
