Linda Dijkshoorn

“I have always been fascinated with biology, chemistry and engineering.”

As a little girl I dreamt of becoming an inventor, entrepreneur and scientist. EV Biotech is the realisation of that dream combined with my passion for the creation of a sustainable society. I believe that with the current technologies we are able to achieve a sustainable society now, but that takes revolutionary steps in many very conservative markets. I strive that EV Biotech will become such a revolutionizing force.

“Questions are always more important than the answers.”/Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture/

I have been introduced to science with a strange, almost unnatural dichotomy between mathematics and biology, always forcing an implicit choice. Fortunately, joining EV Biotech allows me to combine the clarity of mathematics with the complexity of biology. Perhaps, what is even more important is that EV Biotech lets me travel the path that takes mathematical biology from a hobby to a real-world skill, which contributes to making the world a better place “one compound at a time”.

"When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favour." /Elon Musk/

My dream has always been to create something which would be used by others and help people to improve their lives. At the same time, I am passionate about biology and I enjoy programming. As a consequence, my life consisted of switches from computer science to biology and back to software development. Then I have realised: why not to do both? Thus, working in EV Biotech is a perfect chance to achieve my dream by doing what I like to do.
