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. I also enjoy the challenge of helping students develop into physics teachers.
