Breaking down the microbiology world one bite at a time

I’m originally from the Netherlands, where I studied Microbial Biotechnology & Health and Science Communication at Leiden University. I now live in Belgium where I work as a research associate after obtaining my PhD at the KU Leuven. Currently I’m working on a topic in microbial ecology, trying to unravel the interactions between different gut bacteria. While I love to see how such tiny organisms can form big (and important!) communities which can be used for many applications, I also love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm about this subject. So this website is a good way to combine both :-).

If I am not working in the lab, you can find me dancing salsa or riding my racing bike though the beautiful nature in the area.
