Short Bio

Last comments


I work as the Data Steward at the TU Delft Faculties of Applied Sciences, and Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering. I obtained my MSc degree at Radboud University Nijmegen from the program ‘Molecular Mechanisms of Disease’. Then, I did my PhD at the Molecular Genetics Department of Erasmus MC Rotterdam where I studied UV-induced DNA damage repair using proteomics and live cell imaging approaches. During my academic journey, I daily managed data during acquisition, analysis, and publication stages and therefore I have a good understanding of researchers’ perspective and experiences about data management. As a Data Steward, I support, train and inspire researchers to apply good practices in research data management, reproducible research, open science and research integrity. I served as the TU Delft Data Champion Community Manager and continue with community engagement activities within the Open Science Community Delft. I am a co-chair of RDA Discipline-specific Guidance for Data Management Plans Working Group.
