After ten years at the bench as a neuroscientist I took the leap into the private sector. However, never going too far away from research in some form: I worked for Papers as Head of Outreach, and have now moved into Product Management.
I continue to be passionate about helping researchers be productive, and science communication. I am by all accounts a tech evangelist, active spokesperson for women in tech, and an award winning public speaker. At heart I am Dutch, but raised to look far past the boundaries of my small country. As such, I became a serial expat. I've lived in The Netherlands, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates, the UK and Canada, and travelled to many more. For many years, I have been calling Toronto "home".
