Celine grew up in the famous Bulb Region in the Netherlands but moved to Amsterdam to study chemistry. After graduating cum laude for the MSc. Chemistry at VU Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam, Celine started as a PhD candidate in the groups of Prof. Dr. Célia Fonseca Guerra and Prof. Dr. F. Matthias Bickelhaupt. Her research focuses on the understanding of (non-)covalent interactions in hydrogen-bonded systems, varying from supramolecular polymers to DNA. In her spare time, Celine can be found in the gym, trying to break her personal record of 155kg on deadlift.
