My name is Jan-Hein Hooijschuur and as an applied spectroscopist I joined the ASaP team in August 2015 as a R&D specialist in Raman spectroscopy. I obtained my PhD at the VU University in Amsterdam with the development of an analytical Raman spectroscopic method for the detection of life signatures in mineral matrices. There I build up a lot of knowledge about (advanced) Raman spectroscopic methods in LaserLaB Amsterdam. Prior I obtained a MSc. in analytical chemistry at the University of Amsterdam, where I studied the interaction between anti histamines drugs and the human serum albumin protein via steady-state and time-correlated fluorescence in LaserLaB Amsterdam.
In the past I gained practical lab experience as a (lab) technician in different fields and have a degree in teaching chemistry and physics. I am a member of different (international) professional organizations like the Society of Applied Spectroscopy, the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society and the Infrared and Raman Discussion Group.
I joined ASaP to strengthen the R&D group with my experience in optical spectroscopy.
