I obtained my master’s degree from the University of Leiden (The Netherlands) in 2007. During my internships I worked in the group of Prof. dr. Gijs van der Marel and Prof. dr. Hermen Overkleeft on the synthesis of complex zwitterionic oligosaccharides, shingolipids and azasugars. Next, I got my PhD in 2011 at the University of Georgia under the supervision of Prof. dr. Geert-Jan Boons. My PhD studies focused mainly on the stereoselective synthesis of glycosidic bonds using chiral auxiliaries. In 2011 I was awarded a NWO Rubicon fellowship and returned to the Netherlands and started my post-doctoral studies in Nijmegen. I worked on the synthesis of sialosides using a modular approach. In 2013 I started my current position as tenure track assistant professor of chemical biology in Nijmegen.
