Talk to me about… your research 

I studied chemistry at the VU University Amsterdam, where I progressed to obtain a PhD in biophysics from the same university.

Following my postdoctoral research in New York City and Amsterdam, I began my career within the industry. I worked for both ASML, and TNO, and as a life sciences consultant within various organizations.

Since 2012, I've headed the science department at Yakult Nederland, and since 2016, I have been a part time assistant professor at the VU University.
