[9.2014-10.2018] PhD, VU Amsterdam (Cum Laude/with distinction; i.e., considered to be in top 5% of submitted PhD theses) PhD, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. van Westrenen. I focused on many different topics including: - Metal-silicate partitioning of lithophile, chalcophile and siderophile elements - Planet formation conditions and bulk compositions - Volatile flux in early solar system - Solubility of volatile elements in magmas at high P-T - Physical properties of magmas at high P-T - Robotic exploration on the Moon
[9.2012-9.2014] MSc Geology (8.4, Cum Laude), VU Amsterdam I performed a wide range of high pressure experiments to study differentiation conditions of the Moon and other bodies.
[9.2011-7.2012] Pre-master Geology (7.4), VU Amsterdam Courses included geochemistry, petrology, mineralogy, math, physics, tectonics, sedimentology, biogeology, stratigraphy, field work.
[9.2008-11.2011] BSc Earth and Economics (7.4), VU Amsterdam Courses included environmental science, hazard assessment, economics, quaternary geology, soil science, biodiversity, sustainable development, decision making processes, hydrology, etc. Additional training [2.2018-3.2018] Research visitor at Muenster University, Germany I did an intern at Muenster University to study high pressure geochemical processes using piston cylinder and multi-anvil apparatus.
[7.2017-1.2018] Research visitor at Geophysical Laboratory, Washington D.C. I did an intern at the Geophysical Laboratory to study high pressure metal- and sulfide-silicate partitioning of iron-loving elements.
[Since 5.2015] Section editor Elsevier's Encyclopedia of Lunar Science I am currently a section editor of the Lunar Interior section of Elsevier's upcoming Encyclopedia of Lunar Science.
[5.2015-8.2015] SSERVI Exploration Science Summer Internship I worked in a multi-disciplinary team to design robotic traverses for a possible future lunar sample return mission to Schrödinger basin.
