In 2009 I’ve received my Bachelor degree in Biomolecular Sciences and Master degree in Biotechnology at New York University (NYU) School of Engineering. From 2009-2013 I’ve been employed at NYU in a research lab focused on salivary diagnostics of infectious diseases where I focused on developing a sensitive and rapid Point-of-Care diagnostic device for HIV and Malaria. In 2013 I've received my Master in Business Administration (MBA) at NYU Stern School of Business and later worked for five years in the corporate world. In 2019 I started my present position as a researcher at CCB (research group dr. ir. Paul Corstjens) where I am developing Lateral Flow tests for various targets using a novel highly sensitive reporter technology (UCP).
