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.

# Adhesives # Affinity # Atomic Force Microscopy # Coatings # Desorption # Electric Current # Proteins # Recovery
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.
