Prof. Dr. Han Lindeboom, member of the Board of Directors of IMARES responsible for science, and part-time professor at Wageningen University, is a marine ecologist with a strong interest in the application of science for sustainable management of the marine realm. Key study area is the natural and human induced variability of the marine ecosystem and the integrated impact of manageable and non-manageable drivers upon marine species and habitats. He guides and executes research programmes in the Wadden Sea, North Sea and the Dutch tropics. Spatial planning with the emphasis on the creation of Marine Protected Areas, development of offshore wind farms and the development of sustainable non-destructive fishing practices, has his special interest.
In April 2011 Queen Beatrix rewarded him with the Honorary Medal for Arts and Sciences of the House Order of Orange for his outstanding work for marine research, particularly in the polar regions
