Past Experience

  • PhD Student Molecular Biology
    September 2009 --- December 2013
    As a PhD Student at the Hubrecht Institute I use a combination of C. elegans and next generation sequencing to study mRNAs under active translation and molecular biology techniques and zebrafish genetic models to study ribosome biogenesis.

  • Lab Technician
    June 2007 --- June 2008
    At Maastricht University, I did general labwork to assist the PhD Students working in the department. This included harvesting tissue, preparing it for cryo-sectioning, performing immunohistological stains, microscopy and preparing images for publication.
