In 2017, I completed my bachelor in Molecular Life Sciences at Wageningen University and Research. I performed my bachelor thesis in the Physical Chemistry and Soft Matter group, under supervision of prof. dr. Marleen Kamperman. During this thesis I worked on metal coordination in complex coacervate hydrogels. Then, I continued my studies with the master Chemical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology. In 2018, I joined the TU/e student team that competed in the international genetic engineered machine competition (iGEM). Our team worked on engineered living materials based on adhesin-mediated trapping of programmable bacterial cells. Afterwards, I completed my master thesis on polyelectrolyte multilayer membranes for water purification, under supervision of prof. dr. ir. Kitty Nijmeijer and prof. dr. ir. Remco Tuinier. In 2019, I finished my master with an internship in Sweden at Perstorp Chemicals, where I worked on the synthesis of high glass transition temperature bio-based polyesters. In March 2020, I started as a PhD student under the supervision of prof. dr. ir. Ilja Voets at the Institute of Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS).
In my PhD research I work on the development of super-resolution microscopy techniques to localize and study the interactions between macromolecules in complex food structures.
