A healthy sea, a healthy society

Last week, PhD student Emmanuel Van Acker and myself were interviewed by a journalist of the Flemish newspaper De Standaard on Emmanuel’s PhD research. We talked about his research on sea spray aerosols and how this may contribute to human health. Emmanuel was the winner of the Dr. Delcroix Incentive Award for his research. The official award ceremony had to be postponed due to COVID19, nevertheless congratulations, Emmanuel! The full article can be found here in Dutch. But our key message was that our oceans, full of life and biodiversity, are major contributors to our human health, so it is essential we take good care of them.
