Personal details


I studied Biomolecular sciences at VU Amsterdam and I started as a PhD student in November 2018 at Titia Sixma's group. 

My project here is focused on PCNA, a protein with several important roles in replication and DNA damage repair. The focus of my project is on ubiquitination and deubiquitination of PCNA, which is important after DNA damage by UV and allows translesion synthesis to take place.
In order to gain new insights into this process, I will try to solve structures of PCNA ubiquitination and deubiquitination complexes.
