Profile photo of Robin van der Ploeg - welcome to my personal website!

Hi! Welcome to my personal website. I am a geoscientist from the Netherlands who specialises in sedimentary geology, stratigraphy and geochemistry. I have a PhD degree in Earth Sciences from Utrecht University, in which I studied the interactions between changes in global carbon cycling and climate change in Earth’s past. I currently work as a geochemist at Shell in Amsterdam, where I use molecules to contribute to energy solutions and drive business decisions. In addition, I am the founder and owner of The Biogeologist, a website with information on a wide range of subjects related to the natural environment.

On this website you will find my curriculum vitae and an overview of my academic research, publications, outreach and other projects. You are most welcome to have a look around!
