I obtained my Bachelor's degree at the Fontys University of Applied Sciences in 2021, where I've done two internships. I have worked at Romar Voss on the development of ISO-NPG gelcoats, for applications that require high water/UV resistance. I have done my graduation internship at Canon, where I studied and optimized a specific coating technique used for a particular product.
In 2022 I started a Pre-master for chemical engineering at the Technical University of Eindhoven, after which I am now pursuing my Master's degree at the same institution. I am currently working on my master thesis, where the goal is to synthesize block molecules, with diarylethenes acting as a photoswitch to change the molecule from flexible/non-conjugated to rigid/conjugated.
