I joined the theory group at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research as a PostDoc in April 2013. My research interests include the modeling of electronic processes in organic media and organic devices using a kinetic Monte Carlo simulation approach. Currently I am writing simulation software , focusing in particular on the correct implementation of the electrostatic potential of charge carriers.

In 2002 I started a parallel studies Physics and Mathematics at the University of Utrecht. I conducted my master thesis at the Institute for Theoretical Physics under the supervision of prof.dr. R. Loll. My research subject concerned the calculation of spectral properties of simplicial discretizations of space-time. I graduated in Physics in 2006 and in Mathematics in 2007. In December 2006 I joined the Eindhoven University of Technology as a PhD student, under supervision of dr. P.A. Bobbert and prof.dr. M.A.J. Michels. Here I worked on the “three-dimensional modeling of charge carrier transport, recombination and injection events in organic light-emitting diodes” using Monte Carlo simulation methods. In 2011 I went to Mons, where I simulated recombination profiles in organic devices consisting of a host-guest complex material.
