Personal profile

Personal information

Sanne Muis has been working at the Institute for Environmental Studies (IVM) since December 2013. The topic of her PhD is assessing coastal flood risk at the global-scale. This research is partly funded by European project RISES-AM 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 Vrije Universiteit 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.


Runoff processes, catchment hydrology, natural hazards, risk assessment, climate change, adaptation, land use.


2013: MSc Hydrology, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

2009: BSc Earth Sciences and Economics, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
