My name is Sietze Norder, I am a biogeographer and island researcher.

I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at Leiden University where I study how topography, climate, and ecology have shaped human diversity and migration.

In February 2020 I defended my PhD dissertation ‘Island Biogeography in the Anthropocene and Quaternary’ at the University of Lisbon.

My island book: The World in Miniature is out!

It is currently only available in Dutch, but will soon be translated into Italian (add editore), and more languages are in the pipeline!
