Expertise

As a geologist and physical geographer involved in applying earth sciences to archeology in interdisciplinary research and teaching, with emphasis on the Anthropocene. Project management in (field-based) evaluation of archeological monuments, extensive teaching and research experience and initiator and project manager of involving cultural history in planning processes.  

Sjoerd leads the International Association of Landscape Archaeology (IALA), uniting European geologists, archaeologists and historians. He has vast experience in convening interdisciplinary sessions in soils, landscapes and archaeology at EGU, and is guest editor of five special volumes dedicated to this theme (QI, 2012, 2013; Catena, 2015, 2016; SoilD, 2016). Sjoerd is co-supervising 4 PhD students in the field of landscape archaeology on the interface of archaeology and the earth sciences.

Sjoerd has, besides his teaching position, a research and consulting company (www.geo-logical.nl) in earth sciences and works for government agencies and archeological companies. Sjoerd has a special interest in interdisciplinary collaboration as well as glacial processes.
