After graduation of my Bachelor of Applied Sciences in organic chemistry, I worked in the bio-plastic industry to contribute to a sustainable world. To broaden my expertise, I continued to study physical chemistry at the University of Wageningen. Nowadays, I investigate the interactions between polymers and nano-particles, proteins, liquids, or small molecules with chemistry, physics and simulations to gain fundamental insight for practical applications.


  • Chemical Engineering

    • Desorption
  • Material Science

    • Coating
    • Microscopy
    • Protein


Coatings with switchable adhesives contribute to recycling of valuable resources from feed streams. In particular, I research reversible adsorption of proteins and flavor molecules to coatings with electrical affinity switches.

Research profiles

ReCoVR - Design novel functional materials and technologies to selectively recover high-value molecules. These key electrified separation technologies are applicable to many industrial processes and improve circularity.
