In 2018, I received my master’s degree in Chemical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). During my master thesis in the group of prof. Bert Meijer, I worked on the synthesis and characterization of light-induced motion of self-assembled block-copolymers with well-defined morphologies. For obtaining my master’s degree, I also did an industrial internship for 4 months at Vito. Here I worked on the synthesis and characterization of self-healing biopolymers.

In October 2018, I started my PhD at the FYSC department at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) in collaboration with VITO. My project will build further onto the development of bio-based self-healing polymers.
