I obtained my master degree in Pharmacy (pharmD) at the Utrecht University in 2013. During my masters I did a research internship at St. Thomas’ Hospital, London UK, were I contributed to the development of an HPLC method for the detection vitamin K metabolites in feces from pre-term and term newborns. In 2014 I started working as a PhD-student at the University Medical Center Utrecht on ion channels of the erythrocyte in hereditary hemolytic anemia under the supervision of Dr. Richard van Wijk and Dr. Raymond Schiffelers. This project is part of an European consortium (CoMMiTMenT consortium), whereas academic centers and small- and medium sized enterprises are working together to create novel methods and devices to diagnose rare anemia’s (http://rare-anaemia.eu/)

- Erythrocyte-derived microvesicles as potential biomarker for hereditary hemolytic anaemia.
