I have always been interested in the way the world works and how to figure out even more about the fundamentals of nature!
I obtained my B.Sc. in Physics & Astronomy and Chemistry at the Radboud University in Nijmegen and my M.Sc. in Physics of Molecules and Materials (nanotechnology) at the Radboud University in Nijmegen with periods of studying abroad at the University of Munich, Hamburg and Manchester
Recently I graduated from the University of Manchester as a visiting student researcher at the National Graphene Institute in a group that focusses on two-dimensional materials for next-generation desalination and water purification membranes through graphene technology and other 2D materials. I worked in a team of researchers led by prof. Rahul Nair of the University of Manchester that have invented a graphene oxide membrane that can sieve salt from seawater, producing potable water.
