The 22th of March was the Big Day, I had to defend my PhD thesis. After a 10 minute summary about my research I had one hour to answer the questions of 8 (associate) Professors. 1.5 hours later this happy photo was taken. Standing with my Phd between my (co-) promoteres; Tjeerd, Marieke, Peter, Leon, Jan. Leon, Marieke en Tjeerd also gave a great talk about me and the research. Thanks so much for your support these great 5 years!
