Introduction
As a plant scientist I am fascinated about the ability of plants to adapt to their environment with all kinds of abiotic and biotic stress factors. In my PhD research I study spinach tolerance to damping-off disease, following a multidisciplinary approach, combining seed sciences, phytopathology, and plant breeding. In addition, I am fond of gardening and playing the piano and French horn.

Article
Spinach growers face increasing problems of damping off in the production of fresh market (baby-leaf) spinach due to increasing restrictions on chemical treatments. Damping-off tolerant cultivars are increasingly important, requiring proper evaluation methods. From three locations in the Netherlands with a history of spinach cultivation and from on...

Climate change causes species range expansions to higher latitudes and altitudes. It is expected that, due to differences in dispersal abilities between plants and soil biota, range-expanding plant species will become associated with a partly new belowground community in their expanded range. Theory on biological invasions predicts that outside the...

Uniform seedling emergence is crucial for economically viable spinach ( Spinacia oleracea ) leaf production. However, non-uniform seed germination occurs due to variation in moisture sensitivity between and within spinach seed lots. To test moisture sensitivity, we developed a floating germination system with fixed distances between germination pap...
