I am a graduate student pursuing my Master's degree in Software Engineering. I have been working part time at listed real estate company Eurocommercial Properties since early 2015. At Eurocommercial I am part of the team that works on several Open Source applications in the real estate domain, including Estatio and Relatio.
Early 2018, I got interested in smart contract development on Ethereum. I started my Ethereum journey with my Bachelor's thesis, which I wrote on the subject of using blockchain to validate audit trail data. I continued with the ConsenSys Developer Program to learn all there is about smart contract development. During this time I developed the truffle-assertions package for unit testing smart contracts. I wrote two articles about this package, and I gave a talk at TruffleCon 2018 and EthCC 2019 on how to use events inside smart contract tests.
There is a lot to learn in the blockchain space and I am always looking to go deeper into the rabbit hole. I like to attend and speak at conferences / meetups in the blockchain field and I am an active member of the BUIDL Amsterdam community. I have won several prizes at high profile hackathons, including the grand prize at BCHDEVCON Amsterdam and JPMorgan Chase's Quorum prize at ETHParis.
