In 2020 I obtained my BSc. degree cum laude in Chemistry from Hanze University of Applied science after performing a one-year internship at Symeres. During this year I worked on the total synthesis of; "rhodomyrtone A & related compound" and "MZ-1, a PROTAC for the degradation of BDR4 protein". After my graduation, I continued as an associate scientist at Symeres in the medicinal chemistry group. In September 2021 I started my master's in Organic and Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Gothenburg, where I, during the final year, joined the group of Prof. Leif Eriksson to perform my master thesis in computational drug discovery with as research topic; "improving proteasome inhibitor effect through adjuvant compounds targeting TSC2-Rheb complex". I proudly obtained my MSc. degree with honors in June 2023 and in September I started as a MSCA-PhD researcher in the group of Prof. Bert Meijer & Ass. Prof. Ghislaine Vantomme in collaboration with Symeres, where I will be researching the Chiral-Induced Spin Selectivity effect in asymmetric chemical reactions.
