Research

Floortje is particularly interested in engaging disciplinary experts and community stakeholders to identify and design solutions together. Her research builds on policy analysis, transdisciplinarity and systems thinking. In her PhD research called 'Co-design in the coastal context', she developed and investigated co-design methods in which a wide array of participants sought solutions for complex coastal problems. In 2020, she co-edited the book ‘Complex coastal systems: transdisciplinary insights on international case studies’.
