Kevin Groen is a PhD candidate at the CML focussing on unraveling the effect of human impacts on predator-prey interactions, using quantitative diet (DNA) analyses.
Kevin Groen has a B.Sc. degree in Life Science & Technology from the Technical University of Delft and Leiden University with a chemistry minor from Glasgow University.
Furthermore, he holds an MSc degree in Biology, specializing in the field of conservation biology and ecology, from Leiden University. His first M.Sc. research project, at the Institute of Environmental Sciences, Leiden, focused on linking bee distribution to landscape configuration using GIS, for which he was awarded the Stans prize in 2015. The second research project he conducted took place in the Indian part of the Himalaya (Ladakh), in collaboration with Wageningen University and the Snow Leopard Conservancy India Trust. Where he surveyed macroinvertebrates and bird diversity along a high altitudinal gradient, to determine the food availability for birds using the Central Asian flyway. At the start of 2017, Kevin also worked as a research assistant to update the Gene technology practical at the Leiden Institute of Chemistry.
Kevin’s Ph.D. at the CML will focus on unraveling the effect of human impacts on predator-prey interactions, using quantitative diet (DNA) analyses.
