Who I am

I recently graduated with distinction from the MSc Bioinformatics program at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. Currently, I am furthering my MSc research project on elucidating the path from mined metabolic gene clusters to bioactive natural products, as a PhD candidate.

My interests lay on the intersection between natural products, biotechnology, and software development - I have interdisciplenary knowledge on analytical chemistry, industrial fermentation, algorithm development, dynamic modeling and parameter optimization, and machine learning.

Feel free to reach out and lets talk (bio|chem)informatics!

What I do

PhD candidate

I help elucidating the path from genotype to interactome at Wageningen University.

Modeling fermentation

I make proprietary dynamic fermentation models for testing bioreactor setups.



A web repository for bioactive compounds.


Platform for researching polyketide substructure motifs. Work in progress.


Tailoring enzyme regioselectivity predictor for biosynthetic gene cluster compounds. Work in progress.


Ray-tracer for drawing 3D filled-space molecular depictions, written in F#.


3dmol.js wrapper for creating HTML pages for showing molecules.


PyVista wrapper for drawing hi-res 3D molecular conformers. Work in progress.
