His research focuses on virus–host interactions to understand how antibodies neutralize infection and the dual role of antigen glycosylation in this process. He uses an integrated structural biology approach, which combines mass spectrometry and cryo electron microscopy. He received his Ph.D. from Utrecht University in 2015, followed by a postdoctoral research position at the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, USA. He is the recipient of an EMBO long-term fellowship and an NWO Rubicon grant. In 2018, he was awarded the KNAW Heineken Young Scientist Award.
