About

I am currently assistant professor at the MIRA Institute for Biomedical Technology and Technical Medicine at the University of Twente, The Netherlands. Before this, I worked as a Senior Research Fellow at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering of Harvard University. I was affiliated with prof. Don Ingber's Biomimetic Microsystems platform where I worked on the development of a microfluidic model of the blood-brain barrier. I also worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology of the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. Under supervision of prof. Albert van den Berg I worked on new ways to apply microfluidic technology in vascular biology. I received my Ph.D. degree in March 2010 after completing a four-year project at the Institute for Biomedical Technology of the University of Twente. I worked under the supervision of dr. André Poot, prof. Jan Feijen and prof. István Vermes on the application of microfluidic devices in studying the response of endothelial cells to shear stress. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Medical Biology from the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. The projects I performed were mainly focused on molecular biology, cell biology, mathematics and programming.
