I am a trained Pharmacist (MSc) and Analytical Chemist (PhD) with passion for the chemistry of medicinal plants and herbal healing. My work ambitions are based on developing analytical approaches which deepen our understanding of natures' medicine.

Through my business, Herbae Thylacini, I am raising awareness of medicinal plants, especially those native to Australia. Herbae Thylacini is a collection of hand-crafted herbal products made from natural ingredients sourced as locally as possible. We are passionate about increasing and sharing science-based knowledge of medicinal plants through a range of research & educational activities.

I am also part of the team at iugotec Pty Ltd, where we focus on Systems Engineering of advanced sensors for industrial quality control. I am specializing in ion-detection systems for applications across Pharmaceutical Industry and Food & Agriculture.

I love creativity and imagination. I appreciate everyone who has an aim and never loses faith in it. I admire experts with a broad base of general knowledge and beings with a balanced mixture of self-confidence and humbleness. I wish to become one of them and I try to live and work accordingly. 
 
Sport has always been an important part of my life. As a former runner and race walker, I found a new passion in triathlon racing during my time in the Netherlands. I have completed a number of races since then, including two half ironman events. I did my first half ironman to celebrate reaching the half way point of my PhD. A friend asked me at that time: Do you realize what that means when you actually finish your PhD? I am always keen on new challenges...
