Sanne Muis has been working at the IVM since December 2013. Her PhD study focuses on the joint probability of extreme river discharge and storm surges and the implications for coastal risk management and adaptation. This research is part of the RISES-AM project and conducted under the supervision of Dr. Philip Ward and Prof. Dr. Jeroen Aerts.
Prior to starting at the IVM, Sanne completed a BSc in Earth Science and Economics and a MSc in Hydrology, both obtained at the VU University Amsterdam. During this period, she developed a broad interest in hydrology, but particularly in the (societal) impacts of changes in the hydrological cycle due to global warming or land use change. She graduated with a MSc thesis on the influence of land cover change on runoff processes in headwater catchments.
