Mans Shepers is an assistant Professor and post-doctoral researcher at the University of Groningen, with research interests in archeology, agronomy, and ecology.

His work focusses on the complex interactions between people and the natural environment in dynamic coastal landscapes, especially those of the Dutch and German coastal salt marshes.
