Welcome to my website.

This website gives you a quick, but comprehensive overview of my professional achievements in a more personal setting.

Currently I’m situated at the UMC Utrecht department of Pathology in the breast cancer research group of Dr. Patrick Derksen (www.derksenlab.org). As a senior Postdoc in his group I supervise students, teach courses on the university level, supervise Ph.D. students, apply for funding, and manage my own projects.

I’m fortunate to be at the fore front of translating discovery-based fundamental science to patient relevant therapeutic interventions.
