2016

2015

2008

  • 2009 - 2007: Laboratory supervisor, Leiden Institute of Chemistry, Leiden University. Supervised undergraduate laboratory courses for groups of 24-30 students in:

  • 2009-2007: Gene-technology

  • 2008-2007: Biochemistry

My research interests cover basic research on nucleotide excision repair (NER) and the mechanisms involved in the chromatin remodelling required during the different stages of repair. In September 2014 I joined the Reed lab, as a research associate, to study the organisation and mechanisms that underpin chromatin remodelling elicited before, during and after DNA repair by the NER pathway.
