Tess van Eeden works as a research and education assistant in the Weckhuysen group. She supports various educational tasks, e.g. editing a study book written by Bert Weckhuysen which will be used for the third-year Catalysis course at Utrecht University. She also helps to shape a new interdisciplinary Honours program, called the Da Vinci project, where students with different backgrounds work together on sustainability-related challenges commissioned by various stakeholders. Furthermore, Tess assists in the construction of small-scale set-ups that simulate the (applications of) research performed in the Weckhuysen group. These so-called demonstrators enable us to show to the outside world what we do here and why this is so interesting and socially relevant.
