I am Associate Professor in Mathematical Physics at the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics of the Radboud University Nijmegen. My research focuses on noncommutative geometry and its applications to particle physics.

In 2013 I obtained a NWO VIDI-grant on “Noncommutative geometry and quantum lattice gauge fields”.
