Unite all young hydrologists who work in the Netherlands.


Target audience

Everyone who considers themselves a hydrologist and young, and is working in the Netherlands (you do not have to be Dutch!). This is not only limited to scientists, but to everyone in the field of hydrology. We try to connect young hydrologists from universities, research institutes and consultancy firms.


What can YHS-NL do for you?

We organize activities, workshops and other networking opportunities with and for you. These activities can take place anytime, for instance during a conference in the Netherlands or together with the Young Hydrologic Society during international conferences. Besides, if you have an idea, we can support you in organizing an activity. Hence, YHS-NL will offer a great opportunity to meet each other and start building your network!

We post our future activities here.


Organizing committee YHS-NL


Fransje van Oorschot

Delft University of Technology

YHS-NL Chair

Fransje van Oorschot is a first year PhD candidate at the Water Management department of Delft University of Technology. In her research she focuses on improving the representation of the vegetation’s root zone in climate models and so improving modeled land evaporation fluxes on global scales. When she is not thinking about roots in the model world, you can find her outdoors in the real nature biking, running, or playing tennis.

Ruben Imhoff

Deltares / Wageningen University & Research

Ruben Imhoff is a third year PhD candidate at Deltares. His research focusses on the short-term forecasting of rainfall, so called nowcasting, and the application of that in operational water management systems. While he observes the atmosphere with radar and other remote sensing tools during the workweek, Ruben uses his free time to observe the atmosphere by glider. Other hobbies are mountain biking, hiking and cooking.

Janneke Remmers

Wageningen University & Research

YHS-NL Secretary

Janneke is a PhD candidate at the Hydrology and Quantitative Water Management group of Wageningen University. Her research focuses on subjectivity in the hydrological modelling process: what influence do the choices modellers make have on the results? She does this through both interviews with modellers and quantification of the effect different choices have. In her free time, she enjoys reading, cooking, playing lacrosse and volleyball, hiking and crocheting/knitting.

Jerom Aerts

Delft University of Technology

Jerom is a third year PhD candidate at the Water Resources Management department of the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and committee member of AGU-H3S. His research areas are hydroinformatics and large scale computational hydrology. Focussing on the challenges and opportunities that increasing computing power brings to this domain. When not stuck behind his laptop, he enjoys cooking and going outside to admire the flat Dutch landscape.

Melanie Martyn Rosco

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Melanie is a second year PhD candidate at the Earth Sciences department of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Her research is focused on the hydrologically mediated export of terrestrial carbon to inland waters and subsequent greenhouse gas emissions in the Arctic. In her free time she enjoys traveling, cooking, reading and going on hikes.

Qianqian Han

University of Twente

I am Qianqian Han, a second-year PhD student working at University of Twente. In my PhD, I am focusing on global drought analysis with physics-informed machine learning. In my spare time, I like to travel with friends. Besides, I do work out and love volleyball.

Jorge Vega Briones

Utrecht University

Jorge is a second-year PhD candidate at Utrecht University, Faculty of Physical Geography. His work focuses on quantifying drought impacts and their effects on terrestrial ecosystems in South America. For this purpose, he is using hydrological models, satellite retrievals, and collecting dendrochronology samples to link hydrological droughts with vegetation impacts. During his free time, he enjoys sports, music, and cooking.
