Professor of Biomolecular Analysis and Analytical Chemistry, Vrije Unversiteit Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Career highlight: I started doing intact protein analysis in an era of booming bottom-up proteomics, but our first protein peaks were questionable and people thought we were crazy. Now, after persistent development, we can assign hundreds of proteoforms of a single protein in just one run!
Best advice received: When going for my first job interview my father said “don’t oversell, just be yourself.” He was right, because the people that matter are those good at recognizing important qualities without you having to show them off.
