I aspire to steer towards a healthy and sustainable future, by enthusing and inspiring others, and doing innovative research and development for innovative solutions

that tickle my imagination and spark my enthusiasm.


I am a scientist, researcher, developer and teacher. Recently, I finished my physics PhD thesis at the VU Amsterdam. Prior to that, I studied biomedical sciences and biology at Utrecht University, UC Berkeley, and UMass Amherst.

I am most curious about how things function; I like to learn what makes people tick and I am fascinated by nature. I persevere and find innovative, out-of-the-box solutions for unforeseen challenges in new areas. I learned to adapt to new situations, and quickly master new techniques and skills.

Now, I am eager to take my career to the next level. I am looking forward to the next challenge in which I can focus my motivation, curiosity and creativity on groundbreaking and innovative projects. I thrive in a free, open, and energetic work environment. Besides project independence, I enjoy paying attention to interpersonal relationships and effective and involved teamwork. It would give me great satisfaction to see the results of my work available and applied in a broad social context for a healthy and sustainable future.
