Jeroen completed his PhD in plant cell biology at the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands in 2004. His thesis was about the discovery of a new type of plant cell wall loosening protein and its effect on plan growth and reproduction. He then successfully applied for an Intra-European Marie Curie Fellowship to work on plant cell division in the Institute of Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. From 2009 Jeroen continued his research as a Research Fellow at Cardiff University. His current research interests are plant development, cell division and plant growth. Jeroen is keen to collaborate with people working in other disciplines such as computer science, engineering, chemistry and physics.
Jeroen is now a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Computing, Engineering and Science at the University of South Wales.
