About me



Hello and welcome to my digital footprint!

My academic background formed in the diverse educational environments in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, USA, Poland and Moldova coupled with my work experience in the Dutch and British academic worlds sum up to a modest 10+ years of professional experience in research and teaching.

Driven by my passion for knowledge; and being committed to excellence in research, teaching and also innovation; in 2017 I have successfully graduated the Launchbase Incubator, since when I am dedicated to my mission of building bridges between academia and entrepreneurship.
