I AM A PRO - the podcast

Sophie studied the Master’s in Industrial Engineering & Management.

Episode 1 - As an alumna of the Bachelor’s and Master’s in Industrial Engineering & Management at the University of Twente, Sophie den Hartog - Van der Ham is really combining high tech with a human touch. She found the perfect mix in her current job as supply chain manager at high-tech company ASML. Not only does she want to get the best out of the projects she’s working on, but she also wants to help people get the best out of themselves.

Dilu studied the Master's in Nanotechnology.

Episode 2 - Screening diseases such as cancer without using slow, invasive, and expensive methods such as MRI-, CT- or PET-scans, but instead with just a single drop of blood? Thanks to Nanotechnology-alumnus Dilu Mathew, this can be the future. His invention in UT’s NanoLab grew into the promising start-up ECSens, of which Dilu is now Chief Executive Officer.

Izabella studied the Master's in Chemical Engineering.

Episode 3 - Graduated in Food Engineering in Brazil, Izabella Bouhid decided to continue her studies with a Master’s in Chemical Engineering at the University of Twente. She realised she loved combining membrane engineering with food engineering so much, she wanted to continue doing research researching in this field. The only problem was: there was no research group that combined these two fields no research group combined these two fields. At least, not yet.
