PhD candidate
University of Leiden and VU Amsterdam

I am an astrophysics PhD candidate working at the University of Leiden and the VU Amsterdam. My main focus is currently on surface-atmosphere interactions on hot rocky exoplanets. With this aim, I have recently developed a lava degassing code (available on GitHub).

Recent Work


Recently developed a lava degassing code. Available on GitHub, the code calculates the composition of a vapor atmosphere above a lava of a given composition, temperature, and pressure. The paper is currently in review and will be linked here as soon as it has been accepted.

Public outreach

Interview on local Dutch radio - Radio Weetlust

On the 30th of January 2022 I answered questions about how and why the moon changes in appearance as seen from earth. The recording of the show is available here.
