Scientist, entrepreneur, globetrotter…

I am an entrepreneurial person who is interested in solving complex problems in all kinds of disciplines, from biophysics to electronics and microbiology to tissue engineering. I like the unknown and frequently challenge myself in gaining and applying knowledge in new disciplines. Moreover, I like to be a pioneer and initiator of all kinds of endeavors. That is one of the reasons I love to travel and meet new interesting people in different cultures.

What interests me in my professional life is working with different cultures in an international interdisciplinary research or R&D team, where I can make use of my creative and inquisitive character to work on new innovations and lead such a team into new challenging directions. Being a strong believer that the Academic world and the Entrepreneurial world should be one and the same world, I like to find challenges that bridge these worlds.
