Joris Snellenburg, MSc.
I am now working in the field of biophysics, particularly in a project entiteled 'From proteins to the thylakoid membrane'. The aim of this project is to develop a model that describes in detail the process of oxygenic photosynthesis in the thylakoid membrane, which can then be used for further optimization of organisms which make use of oxygenic photosynthesis, such as plants and cyanobacteria. Utimately this will lead to the mass-production of sustainable bio solar fuels, food and feed. Also in this context I developed an application called Glotaran in collaboration with Sergey Laptenok, Katharine Mullen, Ralf Seger and Ivo van Stokkum. This software can be used for global and target analysis of time-resolved spectroscopy and microscopy data, as frequently obtained in the study of photosynthesis.
In addition to my work as a biophysicist I am also still involved in furthering the development of a new type of corneal topographer which I worked on during my bachelor and master studies at the VU University. You can read more about this topographer at the i-optics website, the company that now has this topographer in commercial development.
