Lisanne van Hoek
MSc student UvA
I am a master student Freshwater and Marine Biology at the University of Amsterdam, and I am joining the Reefscape Genomics Lab for my first research internship. I am using the 3D imagery as well as the high-resolution photo’s of different reefs on Curacao, to do a population analysis of the black-ball sponge Ircinia strobilina. I did an interdisciplinary Bsc, for which I joined the Bsc Biology during my second year. The courses on Marine biology were most appealing to me, so therefore I went on to do a Msc in that area. My main interest within marine biology lies with the effects of climate change and combatting it. In my free time, I love to play tennis, go on hikes and read books.
