During my master project in Biomedical Chemistry at the TU/e I studied ring-chain equilibria in a host-guest system based on aromatic peptides and cucurbit[8]uril. After this I joined the Shih-group at the Wyss institute in Boston for an internship. In this internship the research was focused on DNA-origami, drug delivery and the activation of the human immune system.
In June 2014 I started my PhD in the Meijer-group and I am currently working on the introduction of important natural concepts such as clustering, imprinting, super selective recognition and signal transduction in one-dimensional synthetic supramolecular systems. Important techniques used to study these concepts and systems include fluorescence spectroscopy and super resolution microscopy (dSTORM).
