Hooyberg, Alexander
Alexander earned his master’s degree in Biology on Global Change Ecology in 2018, and is especially interested in human-environment relations in a marine context. After graduating, he started to work as a science officer at the Flanders Marine Institute (Ostend, Belgium). There, he analysed data from the Belgian Health Interview Survey to investigate whether living near the coast is associated with better health, and the underlying pathways. Meanwhile, in 2019, he passionately wrote and started a 4-year PhD project on the psychological and physiological restoration (i.e. stress-reducing) potential of the different coastal environments in Belgium. In his research, he integrates new technologies (e.g. eye tracking, VR) into a series of experiments to measure several stress biomarkers, complemented with a large-scale survey on coastal and inland residents. Alexander also endeavours to bridge disciplines (e.g. with clinicians, psychologists, economists) to perform excellent and innovative research.
