during my Career, i have build up expertise in protein production and Purification, more specifically enzymes, recombinant Proteins and Monoclonal Antibodies. i have designed industrial processes optimizing the Fermentation, Purification and final buffer Formulation for Proteins and antibodies applied in In Vitro Diagnostics. currently, as the head of biomanufacturing in a sme active in the In Vitro Diagnostic sector, i am also responsible for implementing  and improving the Quality Assurance system.

apart from protein production and Fermentation, i am also experienced in Protein Engineering and biocatalysis. i have engineered enzymes during my phd to alter the substrate specificity and the stability. i have also developed industrial biocatalytic processes in the starch industry starting at the Lab scale and scaling the process to final industrial scale.

i am interested in jobs in the (bio)Pharmaceutical, chemical and biotechnological sector especially in biomanufacturing and biocatalysis. i am looking for jobs either in production or Process development.
