Curriculum Vitae
I graduated in 2014 in chemistry (Bene Meritum) at Radboud University Nijmegen. Since, I worked as a natural sciences teacher and as a junior researcher. Currently, I am employed as a PhD student at the Department of Environmental Science.

Current project:Fate and exposure modelling of ionizable organic chemicals
This research is part of the iPiE project that aims to perform an intelligence-led assessment of pharmaceuticals in the environment. During early development of pharmaceuticals, large amounts of compound property data and pharmacokinetic data are produced. In my research I will use big data, machine learning and underlying mechanisms to develop Quantitative Structure-Property Relationships (QSPRs) which predict environmental fate and exposure properties of new compounds.

Previously, I worked on several projects aiming to design smart testing strategies for risk assessment of nanoparticles.
