Ph.D. student

Personal details


I studied Biology at Utrecht University and obtained my MSc. degree in Cancer Genomics and Developmental Biology in 2014. My first research internship took place in the Knipscheer lab at the Hubrecht Institute, where I worked on DNA interstrand crosslink repair. For my second internship, I was awarded several grants (KWF, Dr. Hendrik Muller foundation, K.F. Hein foundation) to join the Mittal lab at Weill Cornell Medical College in New York. At this lab I studied the contribution of tumor- and myeloid cell-derived MMP14 on lung cancer progression.

In October 2014, I joined Karin de Visser's lab as a Ph.D. student to investigate the impact of tumor-associated neutrophils on metastatic breast cancer.
