In 2018 I started my PhD in the lab of René Medema, where I work on the relationship between Epigenetics, DNA Damage and Repair. I am interested in how chromatin is able to deal with break formation and how the epigenetic landscape is restored during or after DNA repair.
Before the start of my PhD, I finished the Masters Program 'Biomedical Sciences' at Groningen University. During the program, I performed two internships; the first in the lab of Floris Foijer to identify genes that drive aneuploid cancer cell proliferation, the second internship was at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore in the lab of Andrew Holland involving understanding the molecular mechanisms that control centriole biogenesis.
