I obtained a chemistry degree (2008) in Germany at the TU Dortmund and the Max Planck institute for molecular physiology. During my PhD at the TU/e (2012) I have worked in the chemical biology group of Prof. L. Brunsveld on the development of self-assembling auto-fluorescent amphiphiles as dynamic and modular tools for targeted imaging. After a short Postdoc I have been working in pharmaceutical R&D at Octoplus B.V (a Dr. Reddy’s subsidiary) in Leiden on liposomal and microspheric generics for sustained drug release. Since April 2016 I am a senior research fellow at the TU/e in the group of Prof. E.W. Meijer. Now my wish is to combine my expertise towards the development of controlled drug release using supramolecular polymers and self-assembling amphiphiles.
