In 2000 he started working in the Leiden University Medical Center as a Junior Scientist in the department of Dermatology. He was involved in research into the molecular pathogenesis of cutaneous lymphoma. In 2007 he started working as a molecular biologist at the R&D department of the Dutch Food and Consumer Products Safety Authority.
