About me

Currently I work as Assistant Professor of Mathematics & Operations Research at the Netherlands Defence Academy. Its Faculty of Military Sciences provides the scientific education for officers-to-be and does research in corresponding relevant areas.

Before I was maître-assistant at the University of Neuchâtel and postdoc at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. I did my PhD at the Eindhoven University of Technology.

My research interests are in coding theory, network coding and the connection with other branches of mathematics such as matroid theory, algebraic and finite geometry, and combinatorics.

At the Netherlands Defence Academy there are no teaching assistants, although the workload for a course is sometimes divided over multiple faculty. So, teaching a course means preparing and giving lectures, problem sessions, exams, etcetera. I currently teach the following courses for bachelor students in engineering:

In the past I was also teaching

More about me

I like sharing my enthusiasm for mathematics with others. Every summer I spend a week at math camp with Vierkant voor Wiskunde. I help organising the camp and writing the material. In 2018 we were on the Dutch Radio 1 and you can hear me and others talk about why we keep coming back every year.

I am in the program committee of the Nationale Wiskunde Dagen, a conference for high school mathematics teachers. Furthermore I am co-chair of the Problem Selection Committee of the Dutch Mathematical Olympiad.

When I was a little girl, I started playing the violin ‒ and never stopped. I try to play every day (but do not always succeed). I take lessons and I play in various ensembles and orchestras, such as De Philharmonie.

In the spare time left I try to run, in contrast to sitting behind my desk all day.
