Matthijs graduated in 2018 in Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Groningen. During his studies he worked as a student assistant for practical laboratory training and helped organize events. At the age of thirteen he already knew: “I want to do something with science.” He can perfectly combine his interest in nature and his love for numbers in his position as a biotechnology researcher. Matthijs is very structured, learns quickly, likes clear communication and has everything well under control. He is completely in his element in our laboratory. His tremendous work ethic and his characteristic sense of humour make him a well-liked member of our team.
In his spare time, you will most likely find him on the golf course. He also likes cooking, board games and making music.
