Cas Verbeek

Hey everyone!

For those who I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet; I am Cas Verbeek, a second years Ecology and Evolution MSc student at the University of Amsterdam. For the coming months I am excited to be working with William and Letty to investigate the difference in allergenicity between pollen from urban and rural environments.

This project fits nicely with my BSc thesis where I investigated the taxonomy and phylogeny of pollen chemistry. Hopefully I can apply the experience I have gained there to help make this a successful project! Besides, the data we will be collecting could build on the data I collected during my BSc thesis and help to further unravel the taxonomic and phylogenetic information contained in the chemistry of pollen. I am looking forward to the work that I will be doing with William and Letty, and to share and discuss our progress here with all of you!

  3. Hoi, ik ben erg geïnteresseerd in je schimmelnetwerkonderzoek.
    Ik hoorde dat je een sample hebt genomen in het Vliegenbos.
    Als bestuurslid vd stichting vliegenbos ben ik vooral geïnteresseerd in de gevolgen voor bosbeheer. Nu wordt nog steeds een dikke boom gekapt om ruimte te maken voor de kleintjes. Dit lijkt me onzin maar ik kan het (nog) niet beargumenteren.
    Hoe kan ik op de hoogte blijven van je onderzoek?
