Summary

* Excellent know-how in the recombinant protein production, purification and characterisation. * Development and evaluation of analytical methods that optimize resources, time and cost. * Quick learner with the focus on finding innovative solutions. * Collaborative team player with experience in project management and supervision of junior researchers. * Diverse intercultural competences to work and communicate with international teams and collaborators. * Expertise in different life science techniques, including: - biotechnology - biochemistry - molecular biology and cloning - microbiology - recombinant protein expression, engineering and purification - protein characterization - enzymology In my next job I would like to work on innovative and multidisciplinary projects in which I can get direct contact with project management and experimental design. It should be applied science environment, preferably in industry or private sector.

Experiences

Past Experience

  • Postdoc in Molecular Microbiology Groningen, Netherlands
    August 2014 --- November 2016

    The aim of the project is to find new environmentally-friendly compounds that would prevent spreading and infection of citrus plants with citrus canker. Responsibilities and main achievements: - Planning and executing scientific research. - Production and purification of the protein crucial for the project in half of the estimated time budget. - Developing research solutions requiring extensive analysis and detailed investigation of complex issues. - Technical and scientific supervision of PhD, master and bachelor students. - Actively involved in research projects of other group members. - Developed and evaluated new method protocols. - Laboratory upkeep and ordering supplies. - MLII lab management.

    February 2013 --- June 2014
    Discovery of enzymes oxidizing starches and other complex sugars. http://www.rug.nl/sciencelinx/nieuws/20120725_fraaije_nwo?lang=en Responsibilities and main achievements: - Planning and executing scientific research. - Development and optimization of a new expression screening assay. - Technical and scientific supervision of PhD, master and bachelor students. - Actively involved in research projects of other group members. - Developed and evaluated new method protocols. - Laboratory upkeep and ordering supplies.

  • PhD student
    January 2009 --- December 2012
    Project: Exploring the cofactor-binding and biocatalytic properties of flavin-containing enzymes. The project concerns analysis and modification of cofactor-protein interactions in flavin-dependent oxidases as well as engineering their new/improved catalytic activity. Responsibilities and main achievements: - Planning and executing scientific research. - Production of enzymes with artificial cofactor-protein bond. - Developing research solutions requiring extensive analysis and detailed investigation of complex issues. - Technical and scientific supervision of master and bachelor students. - Actively involved in research projects of other group members. - Prepared scientific publications and protocols. - Presented data at scientific meetings and conferences, in the form of talks and/or posters. - Laboratory upkeep and ordering supplies. - Research work for 1 week at University of Manchester (UK) and for 1 week at University of Pavia (Italy).

  • Market Researcher
    June 2007 --- September 2007
    Summer work, where in addition to conducting opinion polls, I was a regional polls coordinator responsible for the management of people and resources.
