PhD Candidate

About Me

I obtained my BSc and MSc in Molecular Life Sciences both at Wageningen University. In my master, I specialized in physical chemistry, as well as analytical chemistry. During my MSc thesis project, I worked at RIKILT (Wageningen research) on the coupling of gut-on-a-chip to mass spectrometry. During my MSc internship, I joined the analytical chemistry group of the University of Amsterdam, to set up a microfluidic chip that allows online lignin degradation by immobilized enzymes. Developing suitable chromatographic techniques to follow this degradation was also part of this internship. 

 

In my PhD project, I will focus on biomarker detection on chip. For this, we will use the technique local surface plasmon resonance, whereby a local color change will indicate the presence of the biomarker. Normally a randomly patterned surface of gold particles is used. Challenges in this project are the fabrication of the array in combination with a microfluidic chamber and the detection of biomarkers in the fluid using a gold array.
