VELO modules


I am a particle physicist working at Nikhef (Amsterdam, The Netherlands). My research is focussed, as a member of the Atlas experiment, on analyzing proton-proton collissions at the LHC collider at CERN (Geneva, Switzerland).

As an associate professor at the University of Amsterdam I teach (particle) physics to bachelor and master students.

I'm the author of popular science book on particle physics: 'De Melodie van de Natuur' (Atlas Contact , 2018). English translation in 2019.

Starting January 2022 I have been appointed as a professor by special appointment in the physics department of Leiden University where I will work on (research in) science communication in physics.
