de Brauwere Anouk
Drs. Doctoral fellow

Anouk is presently a PhD student at the Department of Analytical and Environmental Chemistry, Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Her research interests are: model optimization and uncertainty estimation applied to the fields of marine biogeochemistry and mixing processes in the ocean.
