Like the other members of TheScienceBreaker, Reinier has a wide range of personal and scientific interests. Between obtaining his master’s degree in Neuroscience (University of Oxford) and starting a PhD in Molecular Biology (University of Geneva), Reinier worked for a medical publishing company in London. This experience increased his awareness of the communication gap between scientists and the broader public. Being part of TheScienceBreaker, Reinier aims to help bridge this gap by opening up the scientific processes behind new developments so that it can be discussed in a free, open and more inclusive way.
