My name is Jonna and I am a Dutch student doing my internship at the ISB group. I will be staying in Sweden to work on this project for 3 months. Back home I am a master student in the Medical Engineering program of Eindhoven Universtity of Technology. This externship is the final part of my master studies.
Previously I have done most of my projects on bioinformatics/data analysis so I am very excited to learn more about the systems biology modeling techniques. This project is a great opportunity to gain more modeling experience. During my time here I will be working on modeling the liver.
In my free time I like to swim and explore the city/area a bit since I am new in town. I’ve spent many of my holidays in Scandinavia (mostly Sweden) so I am very happy to be living here for a few months. I have had a part-time job in a swimming pool where I received my first aid certificate, which I used my first morning in Linköping during helping a patient in the street after a traffic accident in the city center. So my time in Sweden started out quit hectic, hopefully that is not a precursor to how the coming months will be.
I am looking forward to meeting all group members and working on the project within the ISB group.
