Ramon grew up in Gasselternijveen, a small town in the Netherlands. After a research project focused on DNA-based catalysis in water in the group of Prof. Dr. J. G. Roelfes, he obtained his Bachelor’s degree at the University of Groningen in July 2013. He continued his studies in the same group doing his Master’s a research project on the design and synthesis of fluorescent probes based on N4Py iron complexes for the detection of reactive oxygen species. After an internship at potato-starch manufacturer Avebe, exploring new analytical methods to study the cross-linking of starch, he obtained his Master’s degree in August 2015. In November 2015, Ramon started his PhD in the Hirsch group and his research interests currently lie in the field of protein-templated dynamic combinatorial chemistry.
