Since 2023, I have been working in NLO’s pharmaceutical sector as a trainee patent attorney. My scientific background is in molecular biology, genetic manipulation and the development of medicines.

Before joining NLO as a trainee patent attorney, I was a PhD student working at RadboudUMC in Nijmegen. During my PhD, I contributed to the development of new genetic therapies for inherited retinal degeneration. Since NLO helped me with writing patent applications, I experienced how it is to be one of NLO’s clients. This triggered my interest in IP law.

I would love to use my experience to protect your inventions and offer you the best possible IP position. I enjoy finding creative solutions for problems and have a positive mindset. Together with our team of experts, I look forward to helping you further.


  • BSc, Molecular Life Sciences (Radboud University Nijmegen)

  • I have published several scientific articles in international journals.
