I joined the University of Leeds in October 2017 as a Marie Sklodowska Curie Research Fellow (Postgraduate).
I obtained a MSc in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences from the University of Utrecht in August 2017 during which I undertook research projects with Dr Raoul de Groot (University of Utrecht) and Professor Dr Peter Simmonds (University of Oxford). I completed my MSc thesis with Professor Dr Frank van Kuppeveld (University of Utrecht).
My work at the University of Leeds focuses on the structural and functional elucidation of negative-sense single-stranded RNA virus nucleoproteins. Viruses of interest include members of the Arenaviridae, Hantaviridae, Paramyxoviridae, Peribunyaviridae, and Phenuiviridae.
The project is embedded in the European Council-funded HONOURs consortium, a network of European universities, research institutes, and companies with the aim of training early stage researchers in outbreak preparedness for emerging and re-emerging zoonotic viruses.
