Stef, about to travel in reciprocal space.

Postdoc (KIND fellow)

I studied Chemistry at Utrecht University (BSc & MSc) and received my PhD in Materials Science at ETH Zurich in 2015. My PhD research focused on structure determination of polycrystalline materials (mainly zeolite catalysts) by combining experimental (i.e. X-ray powder diffraction, electron diffraction, NMR, and HRTEM) and computational methods. I moved to Stockholm University in 2016 to learn electron crystallography. I mostly focused on bringing serial crystallography to the electron microscope, and developed software for automated crystal screening, electron diffraction data collection, and data processing pipelines.

I’m interested in crystallography, electron diffraction, method development, and programming. At the start of 2019 I joined the labs of Arjen Jakobi and Sonia Conesa-Boj to combine these elements to provide novel insights into the structures of both biological compounds and nanostructured materials.

In my free time I like traveling, playing video games, and sports. My favourite programming language is Python.
