About Me

I completed my Ph.D. in supramolecular chemistry (host-guest chemistry, self-assembly, liquid-crystalline materials and catalysis) in 2001 with Prof. Roeland J.M. Nolte at the Radboud University Nijmegen (The Netherlands). After that I initiated and developed a collaboration between the physics and chemistry departments of the Radboud University, with the aim to employ Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) as a tool to investigate the behavior of single molecules on surfaces under ‘chemically realistic conditions’ (solid/liquid interface, room temperature, atmospheric pressure). At the same time I was involved in setting up NanoLab Nijmegen, an initiative to make developments in nanoscience and nanotechnology accessible for enterprises. In 2008-2009 I stayed in the group of Prof. Steven De Feyter at K.U.Leuven (Belgium), after which I returned to Nijmegen as an independent group leader. My research focuses on the construction and study of self-assembled molecular systems in solution and on surfaces, and to investigate their structural and functional properties at all scales.
