  • Profile

    Since August 2019 I am part of the expertise team Academic Skills and Student Centric Education (AV-SO). I teach Academic Skills and Programming. Moreover, I also guide students in their transition to the university and develop new teaching material.

    While studying Psychobiology I developed a fascination for molecular celbiology. During my masters I studied nanobodies that bind to the oncomodulating receptor US28. This receptor is present in the human cytomegalocirus and plays a part in the progression of brain tumours. I am also interesed in bioinformatics and gained experience in this field by analysing and interpreting complex biological data using computational methods. In my thesis I worked on the development of a universal workflow to analyse ribosome profiling data.
