More about Professor Roel Dullens

P.S. If you think Roel and Dirk’s CV’s look quite similar, you are correct! They both started studying chemistry in Utrecht in 1996, before starting their PhDs in 2001, sharing an office for most of the time (N701 – a rather infamous office!) before graduating on the same day in 2005. They then both took up lecturerships in 2007 and now run their groups effectively as one.
