I am a professional astronomer focussing on the characterisation of exoplanets, planet formation, and the dusty Universe. I am the head of the exoplanet science group at SRON (Netherlands Institute for Space Research). In that context I manage, among others, the Dutch contributions to the PLATO and ARIEL missions from ESA.

I maintain several astronomical codes for performing radiative transfer in protoplanetary disks. I am currently working on a simulation and retrieval code for exoplanet atmospheres. Drop me an email if you want to know more.
