Abstract In this meeting we can talk about my main expertise: the focus of my research ocus revolves around understanding
catchment system dynamics in a holistic way by incorporating both processes on hillslopes as well as in the river
channel. Process knowledge enables explanation of the impact of natural and human drivers on the catchment
systems and which consequences these drivers have for water and sediment connectivity. Improved understanding
of the catchment sediment and water dynamics will empower sustainable land and river management and mitigate
soil threats like erosion and off-side water and sediment accumulation with the help of nature’s forces. To be able
to understand the system dynamics of a catchment, you need to study the catchment system in a holistic way.
In many studies only the hillslopes or even plots are studied; or only the channel. However, these systems are
connected and should be evaluated together. When studying a catchment system any intervention to the system
will create both on- as well as off sites effects, which should especially be taken into account when transferring
science into policy regulations or management decisions.
