Assistant Professor in Biophysical Chemistry
IMM Radboud University Nijmegen

With a background in biophysics and biochemistry, I have a long-standing interest in gene expression kinetics and circuit design in diverse systems, ranging from bacteria and viruses to mammalian cells. Before coming to the Netherlands, I worked in the bay area science "bubble" in sunny California. In addition to being exposed to spectacular science I have developed a passion for hiking and photography. I am taking all I have learned inside and outside the lab back to Europe and am very excited to have started my research group in the Biophysical Chemistry department in Nijmegen.

If you are interested in joining my lab, see the openings section.

Óscar García Blay, MSc

PhD student

I studied genetics and biomedical research in Barcelona. I am interested in a variety of topics related to how the genome works to regulate and control biological processes. As a PhD candidate in the Hansen Lab, I combine my interest in gene expression research with the perspective of systems biology. My goal is to identify mechanisms that regulate gene expression noise in a biological context. Outside the lab, I enjoy cooking, listening and sharing music and also travelling. I am always looking for nice activities to do such as escape room games.
