I'm an Associate Professor at Leiden Observatory in the Faculty of Science, part of Leiden University. My current research interests are in searches for extrasolar planets and the techniques that can help us find them, such as coronagraphic optics and point spread function reconstruction techniques. I teach courses on exoplanets, instrumentation and introductory astronomy.

My publications page contains PDFs of refereed papers, conference proceedings and posters. Here is my Curriculum Vitae (updated 2018 January 02) and a short biography. All publications / Peer reviewed papers.
