  • Profile

    I have been part of the expertise team Academic Skills and Student Centric Education since 2015.  Within the team I work as an Academic Skills teacher, Cell Biology teacher, student mentor, and developer of education. 

    Previously I have done research as PhD-student and Postdoc researcher at the Academic Centre for Dentistry Amsterdam, investigating the complex relationship between pathogens and the human host.  

  • Expertise-team Academic Skills and Student Centric Education (AV-SO)

    Vision and Mission

    The expertise-team Academic Skills and Student Centric Education (Academische Vaardigheden en Studentgecentreerd Onderwijs) aims to collaborate with research institutes, teachers and course-coordinators to develop and provide high quality innovative, research-focussed education. 

    The team consists of experienced, motivated teachers with a scientific background in various fields within (medical) biology.

    We wish to contribute to student talent development using our expertise and passion.
