Polyglot European Scientist. I thrive working in interdisciplinary environments combining the study of enzyme reactions and mechanisms with bioinformatics, molecular modelling, automated data analysis and data stewardship.
Institutions: University of Groningen
I work as a project manager for the Innovative Training Network PoLiMeR - Polymers in the LIver: Metabolism and Regulation funded by the EU. In addition I am a project manager for the UMCG Research BV where I support scientist in the pre-award phase with writing their proposals and in the post-award phase with managing their awarded projects.

Since August 2008 I am professor in Systems Biology at the VU University Amsterdam. My Systems Bioinformatics group focusses on systems biology with a special focus on integrative bioinformatics. It aims at forming bridges between the classical bottom-up approaches in systems biology and the more data-driven approaches in classical bioinformatics. We combine experimental, modeling and theoretical approaches to study cellular physiology, with an emphasis on metabolic networks.
