I obtained both bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Radboud University in Nijmegen. During my bachelor I became familiar with the Boltje Research Group when doing research towards various fast release sugar drug conjugates. During my Molecular Chemistry master track I did a major internship for over a year in the Synthetic Organic Chemistry department, were I worked on the challenging synthesis of tetrahydrocannabinol derivatives through late-stage derivatization . Hereafter I joined Aspen Oss. B.V. for a minor internship were I conducted research towards the feasibility of industrial applicable routes for different inhibitors.
The exciting and inspiring environment in the Boltje Research Group motivated me to return for a PhD as of September 2019. My current project focuses on the fast identification of (bio)luminescent substrates for point-of-care coagulation diagnosis.
