About Me

Modern physics fascinates me, and seeing students grow makes me happy. I have always been interested in learning how to spark the curiosity of all students and support them on their journey of discovery in physics.

My own career started as a researcher in laser physics in Germany; later, as a physics teacher, I shared my passion for physics with secondary school students in the Netherlands. For the past few years, I have been involved in research again - this time research on teaching physics.

My research interests are student experiments, Nature of Science, quantum physics on the secondary school level, and making physics attractive for all our students. The title of my doctoral dissertation is 'Connecting Secondary School Quantum physics and Nature of Science'. I enjoy the challenge of helping students develop into physics teachers.
