Current Experience

  • Research associate Leuven, Belgium
    Since October 2016

    My current job focusses mostly in analysing the lead compounds and tissues from the in vivo studies. The most used techniques are ELISA, Western Blot, UPLC and biacore. 

Past Experience

  • Master thesis and Internship Porto, Portugal
    November 2015 --- June 2016

    Influence of viscosity on the efficiency of fluorescence in situ hybridisation. FISH was performed on different bacterial strains with an EUB338 probe, using hybridization solutions with varying viscosity. Fluorescence intensity was observed with flow cytometry. Achieved competences: ✦ Bacterial cell culture ✦ FISH ✦ Epifluorescence microscopy ✦ Flow cytometry ✦ Presenting results ✦ Reeding scientific articles

  • Bachelor Thesis
    March 2014 --- April 2014
    Expression and purification of cytoglobin. Cytoglobin was expressed in bacterial cells, followed by an extraction and purification with column chromatography. The expressed proteins were searched for with SDS-PAGE and Western-blot. Achieved competences: ✦ Bacterial culture ✦ Mammalian cell culture ✦ Molecular cloning ✦ Column chromatography ✦ SDS-PAGE ✦ Western-blot
