In my teaching years at Wageningen University, the University of Zimbabwe and UNESCO-IHE I have worked with many talented and inspiring postgraduate students and PhD fellows. My current PhD fellows and PhD graduates are listed on this page, and links are provided to the published PhD theses (that in the Dutch system are open access). As can be seen, several PhD graduates have been co-supervised with colleagues from UNESCO-IHE, TU Delft, Wageningen University and VU Amsterdam, including Hubert Savenije, Nick van de Giesen, Stefan Uhlenbrook, Huub Gijzen, Linden Vincent and Roy Brouwer.
