Maastricht Team

Linda Rieswijk

Co-City Coordinator

Data scientist with a training in Molecular Nutrition, a PhD degree in Toxicogenomics and postdoctoral experience in Bioinformatics, Data Science and Environmental Sciences. Advocate of interdisciplinary research on the crosstalk between the biological and technical domain to study biomedical challenges and their implications on society. I believe that scientific breakthroughs can only be successful and have a powerful impact when the needs of the public are also taken into account. What better way than to do this in an informal setting together with a nice pint of beer :)

Flavour physicist working on finding out how the tiniest of fundamental particles behave by comparing theory with experimental data. I am an assistant professor at the Gravitational Waves and Fundamental Physics department of Maastricht University focussing on unravelling the decays of the beauty mesons. If you want to know more about those, come join one of our events!

Postdoctoral researcher at Studio Europa, in my research I am interested in how social media has invaded our lives. One of my passions is also science communication, and I never miss an opportunity to connect science and society. Already a big fan of Pint Of Science in France, I'm happy to be able to join the Maastricht team and look forward to meeting you.

Enthusiastic about biology, with a keen interest in new technologies, I did a PhD on 3D printing technologies for bone regeneration. I am now a post-doc at MERLN institute (kind of dutch Hogwarts), learning magic tricks to repair bone. I believe that beer is the best way to break the ice (especially when it's super fresh) between science and public!

I am a postdoc working in the field of mathematical oncology. My scientific passion is to use mathematical models to decode cancer’s secrets and contribute to a cure. I’m really passionate about science communication, I never pass up the opportunity to make science accessible and to bring the fun of science to the wider public. I’m very excited to help in sharing all the cool research happening in Maastricht!​

Luise is a PhD candidate in physics working on advanced quantum noise cancellation techniques for future gravitational wave detectors, which means that she has taken up the challenge to beat Heisenberg’s Uncertainty in interferometry based on lasers hitting mirrors. Many ideas in the past were born in the presence of a pint or two, so she is looking forward to sharing her enthusiasm for physics and hearing your thoughts.

I am medical bachelor student at Maastricht University. I come from a small island in the Caribbean called Curaçao, and I chose to leave my home to pursue my passion for medicine in the Netherlands. I am a very passion driven individual, so I like to seek opportunities to satisfy my curiosities and expand my range of knowledge; hence why I joined the Honours Programme and why I am currently working on helping set up Pint of Science in Maastricht.
