Erik van Sebille

Expertise: Marine and Atmospheric Research & Physical Oceanography

In Dutch

Marine physicist Erik van Sebille (1981) studies how small particles, such as plastic and plankton, move in oceans. He is interested in the influence of ocean currents on the climate, ecosystems and pollution and his work straddles physics, biology and the policy sciences. He also cooperates on the Plastic Tide Citizen-Science Project, in which amateur drone pilots worldwide are documenting plastic pollution on beaches. At The Young Academy, Van Sebille aims to promote more transparent scientific data and methods and the involvement of stakeholders in research.
