my name is Inger van den Bosch and I will be your student representative until 2016. I am from the Netherlands and am currently 26 years old. I did a Bachelors in General Biology at the University of Amsterdam. After that I proceeded with a Master degree in Oceanography and Limnology, also at the University of Amsterdam. During my masters I focussed on marine mammal distribution and behaviour through internships in different countries. I helped study coastal behaviour of bottlenose dolphins in Ireland and the Azores and looked at seasonal distribution of common dolphins in New Zealand. Currently I am a trainee with the Dutch ministry of infrastructure and environment. Here I am working on the cummulative effects of anthropogenic disturbances on marine mammals and birds in the North Sea and how we will deal with these effects in marine protected area management.
In my spare time I love to go on hikes, and see movies and concerts. I also swim twice a week and go to the beach to powerkite when I can. As your student representative I will not only organize the volunteers during the next two ECS conference, but also student parties and other student affairs. I already received a lot of input from you guys, thanks for that. Do not hesitate to contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions or suggestions, not only leading up to the conference but all year round.
See you all at the next conference!
