As a biomedical microtechnologist, I am passionate about integrating promising upcoming micromaterials and (micro)technologies into the fields of medical biology, cell-based therapies and clinical diagnostics. After my PhD in Tissue Engineering at University of Twente, I performed postdocs at KU Leuven and Harvard-MIT, where I became subgroup leader, after which I accepted a Tenure track position at University of Twente. I have a Visible research track, strong expertise and experimental background in: I) tissue engineering, II) microfluidic technology, III) organs-on-a-chip, IV) (stem) cell biology; and V) biomimetic biomaterials. This has led to numerous papers in high-ranked journals including Cell Stem Cell, Nature Communications, Small, Advanced Functional Materials, and PNAS. I have had the honour to have been awarded with Veni, Vidi, and ERC Starting grants as well as multiple early career and presentation awards.
