Dr Andreas Baas achieved his BSc in Physical Geography and Soil Science and his MSc in Process Geomorphology at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), which included an internship at the Desert Research Institute in Reno, Nevada. He held a one-year research position at UvA on a Rijkswaterstaat-funded project for the physical modelling of foredune development. He then moved to Los Angeles and the University of Southern California (USC) where he earned his PhD, supported by a Tyler Environmental Fellowship, two College Dissertation Fellowships, and a Research Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). During his last year in Los Angeles he was an Adjunct Professor at California State University San Bernardino. In 2003 he was appointed lecturer in physical geography at the Department of Geography at King’s College London. Andreas is an editor for Nonlinear Processes in Geophysics, an editorial board member for Geomorphology, on the advisory board for Biaban Journal, and he is a member of the Executive Committee for the Geomorphology Division of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
