Mirthe is doing a Bachelor’s degree in Life, Science and Technology. She loves being involved with all parts of the project, and brainstorming with team members and experts in the field. That is why she is our Team & Finance manager.
Jennifer is currently following a Master's degree in Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology, with a focus on genetic engineering. If she could she would have a lab at home, which is why she is our experimental design manager.
Nadine is doing a Master’s degree in Biopharmaceutical Sciences and is mainly interested in data science and bioengineering. She aims to learn more about computational sciences and their application to biological problems. During iGEM she fulfills the role of data analysis manager.
Tino is in his 3rd year of BSc Biology. He is going to do an internship involving plant microbe interactions in halophilic plants. However, his other intrests lie deeper in molecular/quantum biology. Bacteriophages and human aging keep him awake at night! iGEM has taught him lots about how to manage multiple aspects of a project and the fun of networking.
Anna is doing a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. With her extensive knowledge of equations she’s making a model for the team.
J.R. is finishing up his Master’s degree in Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology. He loves molecular biology, cloning, and doing lab work in general. As he likes to put it, he likes playing with bacteria. This is why he is our Wet Lab Manager.
Windi (you can pronounce her name like "windy", the weather), is currently studying Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology Master Program at Leiden University. She is really interested in biotechnology especially related to human health and the development of new medicine or treatment. In our team, Windi has a role as the Communication Manager.
Moor finished her Bachelor’s Life Science & Technology. She loves learning about life on a molecular level and applying this in her bachelor’s thesis, where she developed an assay to measure DNA bridging. During iGEM she developed her creative side as the design manager of the team.
Matthijs is doing his Bachelor’s degree in Biology. He is a third year Biology student who is very interested in synthetic biology and genetic engineering. Understanding how and why things work is what he loves. He also really likes working with new technologies, computers and software. This makes him a perfect fit for the Programming manager of the team.
Zainab is pursuing a Master’s Degree in Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology. For her first internship, she focused on the interaction between wall-less bacteria and the immune system. She is currently working on studying archaeal hypernucleosomes. She enjoys writing about science and is our wiki manager.
Elise is currently a Master’s student in Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology. She has a very diverse background due to her wide interest, which is why she had taken on the role of human practices manager.
Olivier is studying Life Science & Technology and for his bachelor’s thesis looked at bimetallic nanoparticle surface chemistry. He loves interacting with people about biotechnology and is our team’s Public Engagement Manager.
Eva is a Biology Bachelor student, with a preference for Microbiology. Currently, she is doing the minor Molecular Biotechnology. She loves to think ahead and to put things into practice, which is why she is our Entrepreneurship & product design manager.
