When I started my career in industry, I fell in love with robotics and automation, and I knew instantly that this is where I belong. I have eight years of industrial experience in drug discovery, using robotics and liquid handling systems, and I have developed and validated enzymatic and cell-based assays for high throughput screening of small molecules. It’s fun to watch the instruments following the commands and doing the job more precisely and time-efficiently.

To advance my knowledge on assay development, I did my PhD on the development and validation of a novel assay where I got insights of understanding the mechanism of how an assay works. My PhD work allowed me to investigate all the tiny but important aspects of assay development and led to a better understanding of troubleshooting and validating assays.

Apart from my work, I love hiking, canoeing and travelling to new places. I do like cooking, but it often ends up in disaster, but I am great at barbequing. I just need perfect weather and a few friends for barbeque.
