In 2016, I received my BSc. Degree at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) after a final bachelor’s project in the group of prof. dr. Bert Meijer. During this project I focused on the synthesis of single-chain polymeric nanoparticles with spin labels for surface water retardation studies. In 2017, I rejoined the group for my graduation project which was focused on the effect of crystallinity and dispersity on the self-assembly behavior of well-defined block co-oligomers in water. Afterwards I went to London to perform an internship at Spirogen, where I worked on the synthesis and conjugation of highly potent payloads for imaging of antibody drug conjugates. After obtaining my MSc. degree in spring 2019, I started as a PhD student under supervision of prof. dr. Bert Meijer and prof. dr. ir. Anja Palmans. The aim of my project is to gain a better understanding of multivalent binding in dynamic supramolecular systems, to investigate if we can obtain control over this phenomenon for use in biomedical applications.
