Koen Pieterse studied Chemical Engineering at the Eindhoven University of Technology and majored in Organic Chemistry in 1996 in the group of prof.dr. E.W. Meijer. He started his PhD-research in the same group on the subject of “Electron-Deficient Materials based on Azaheterocycles”, which he finished in 2001. He moved to the Computational Biology group of prof.dr. P.A.J. Hilbers at the department of Biomedical Engineering and worked for several years as researcher on coarse grained molecular dynamics simulations of biomembranes and vesicles using PumMa as well as simulations of full atomistic models of various supramolecar systems. He currently holds a supporting staff position in this group. In April 2009, Koen Pieterse also started to work for the Institute for Complex Molecular Systems, where he currently is the team leader of the ICMS Animation Studio.
