Sanne Muis

Sanne Muis received a B.Sc. in Earth sciences and economics in 2009, an M.Sc. in hydrology in 2013, and a Ph.D. in flood risk in 2018, all at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Her graduate research, advised by Jeroen Aerts and Philip Ward, investigated extreme sea levels and coastal flood risk at the global scale. During her graduate research, she closely collaborated with the Deltares institute. In 2016, she received a Fulbright Visiting Scholar Award, which she used to collaborate with Ning Lin at Princeton University. Muis currently is working as a researcher at Deltares and as an assistant professor at the Institute for Environmental Studies at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Her research interests include extreme sea levels, coastal flooding, hydrodynamic modeling, and climate variability and change.
