Subsequently, she carried out postdoctoral research before joining the technology transfer wing of the Soft Matter Physics group at the University of Edinburgh.

Marieke’s main research interests included biopolymers, particularly self-assembling proteins. She has worked on both biological processes involving self-assembling biopolymers, as well as design and application of bio-inspired materials. More recently, she has investigated the use of biopolymers in food and personal care products. Marieke joined V. O. in August 2019.
