Hybrid nanopores, molecular transport through protein nanopores, DNA nanostructures
I finished my MSc in molecular sciences at Wageningen University, the Netherlands. I then continued my PhD in physical chemistry on complexation of polyelectrolytes under the supervision of Prof. Martien Cohen Stuart and Prof. Jasper van der Gucht. After having obtained my PhD in 2012, I briefly worked in the lab of Prof. Wilhelm Huck at Radboud University Nijmegen on crowding of in vitro transcription/translation in microdroplets. I then moved to Paris for a postdoc at ESCPI ParisTech and Ecole Polytechnique with Prof. David Quéré and Prof. Christophe Clanet, where I worked on wetting and flow on microtextured surfaces. In 2015, I joined the Bayley group to develop hybrid DNA-protein nanopores. Besides physical chemistry and chemical biology, I also enjoy hiking, sailing, good coffee and playing the piano.
