  • Scientific researcher

Esther Brakkee started working as a researcher on the Ecohydrology team in October 2020. In her studies at Wageningen University & Research she worked on subjects in the fields of hydrology, water-vegetation interactions, nature management and drought. Esther did her thesis research on methods using field measurements and model analyses to improve the micro-climate in nature areas with degraded raised bogs still capable of natural regeneration. She first came to KWR as part of an internship, during which she charted the regional evolution of the groundwater drought in 2018-2020. She will now be working at KWR in various research projects in the fields of ecohydrology and climate-proof landscapes.
