About me

My scientific career started by studying Applied science at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences. I specialised in Biomedical science. Here my interest grew in the magnificent world of genetics and genomics. Hence, I chose to start with a master of biomedical science and specialise in Genetics and genomics. Besides my interest in genetics, I want to help others. This combination led me to the department of Clinical Genetics, where I will perform my internship at the Cellular Genomic Medicine lab of Masoud Zamani Esteki. Here I will focus on ‘’ The investigation of incidences and the nature of homologous recombination and genetic abnormalities in PGT embryo data by utilizing haplarithmisis’’. With my research, I will contribute to increasing knowledge that will increase the IVF success rate. Furthermore, I am grateful for this opportunity and excited to work with this team.
