Meet the team: Teuntje

Teuntje is a physics researcher at the University of Bristol, originally from Amsterdam. She has recently defended her PhD thesis on orbital and spin angular momentum of electrons and light. She’s interning at the Archive Trust until December.

In her spare time, she likes to row, to climb and to cook new dishes for friends.

Teuntje prefers cats to dogs, but penguins to all other animals. She wishes she could take porridge and Sunday roasts back to the Netherlands with her, and that the British could pick up on Dutch cycle culture. She recommends the book All the Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr. Her ideal holiday would be spent hiking out in nature. Her house is next to a Bansky.

Do ask: What’s the worst thing about Dutch trains?

Don’t ask: Now that you’ve submitted your thesis, what do you want to do?
