Hans Lenstra (Utrecht University, Netherlands) has been educated as chemist and biochemist. Since 1978 he has worked on molecular evolution, eukaryotic gene structure, genome characterization and molecular diversity of livestock and wildlife. His present research interests include the molecular diversity of cattle, sheep, goat, water buffalo and horse by analysis of mitochondrial and Y-chromosomal DNA variation, microsatellites, high-density SNP datasets and complete genomic sequencing. He considers the use of genomic data and the development of accessible analysis tools to translate dense datasets to biologically relevant conclusions as the present challenge. Since 2014 he is Editor-in-Chief of Animal Genetics.
I am an ambitious clinical researcher who is passionate about combining clinical questions with technical solutions. Being both researcher and medical doctor, I have the unique position of ‘living in two worlds’: the research world in one hand and the clinical world in the other. In this way, I can develop new techniques that can fulfill clinical needs as well as being applicable in real clinical practice.

Working at Utrecht University: research, teaching and supervising BSc, MSc and PhD-degree research, as an assistant professor, in the framework of our 'Delta Evolution' programme. We constantly aim to synchronize the various activities in that programme with similar ones in Deltares and TNO Geological Survey of the Netherlands - to launch joint new activities.
My topics are Quaternary Geology and Lowland Geomorphology - and a lot of subtopics fitting within that. These often feature GIS, geostatistics and deltaic rivers interacting with sea, climate and neotectonics. Ongoing projects deal with (1) extreme discharge peaks of the river Rhine, (2) Proper ways of using GIS and high-density geoinformation in 3D subsurface models, below delta cities and polder agricultural areas, (3) Landscape-evolution of the Netherlands, the Southern North Sea, the Lower Rhine Embayment: Holocene sea-level rise, coast and deltas, Late Pleistocene palaeovalleys, Quaternary sedimentary architecture (4) Quaternary mapping and stratigraphy at national and international scale in general.
I'm an assistant professor at the Department of Sociology in Utrecht. Before moving to the Netherlands, I held a research fellow position at Nuffield College and the Department of Sociology in Oxford. I studied sociology (with computer science and economics) at University of Bern and completed my doctorate at ETH Zurich in 2009. My research interests are in analytical and economic sociology, game theory and quantitative methodology, in particular experimental methods. My work has been published in leading disciplinary and cross-disciplinary journals such as the American Journal of Political Science, American Sociological Review, European Sociological Review, Evolution and Human Behavior, Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B: Biological Sciences and Social Forces.
