  • Profile

    Since August 2022, I have been a member of the team that teaches academic skills. Initially for the bachelor Biology and later for Biomedical Sciences. Besides this, I am involved in the courses "Grip op je Studie","Studie Loopbaan OriĆ«ntatie", the Honours course "De Eeuw van de Levenswetenschappen" and I am a mentor for first year students. 

    My interest for biomedical sciences mainly focuses on metabolism and the effect of nutrition on health status. In my Masters in Nutrition and Health in Wageningen, I studied the long-term effects of early-life nutrition. I love to continue learning more about the human body and am passionate about transferring this enthusiasm to my students.
