I obtained my PhD at Leiden University in 1988 on gene expression studies in tobacco transformed with the cytokinin biosynthesis gene from Agrobacterium tumefaciens. After that I worked at the Leiden Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences first as a postdoc (1988 -1989) and later as a staff member leading research on the transcriptional regulation of terpenoid indole alkaloid biosynthesis in the medicinal plant Catharanthus roseus.

I obtained my PhD at Leiden University in 1988 on gene expression studies in tobacco transformed with the cytokinin biosynthesis gene from Agrobacterium tumefaciens.

In 1989 – 1990 I was a post-doctoral fellow in the Laboratory of Plant Molecular Biology at The Rockefeller University (NY, USA) with financial aid from the North-Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

In 1993 I visited the same lab as a Fulbright fellow. In 2005 I was appointed professor in Plant Cell Physiology. Currently I am participating in the SmartCell consortium, a large collaborative project funded by the EU 7th Framework Program.
