About me

I grew up in Friesland before moving to Groningen to study. Here I received a BSc and MSc in chemical engineering, as well as a BSc in chemistry. In September 2023 I started my PhD in the group of Prof. Dr. B. L. Feringa, working on biologically-sourced adaptive coatings. Besides chemistry I like football, swimming and fitness.

About my research

Smart functional coatings provide additional functionality over traditional coatings by responses to external stimuli. In this project we will design, synthesize, and assemble novel chemical building blocks with inherent adaptable functionalities and assemble these to yield smart coatings with incorporated functionalities.
