Roland Dries

Science Park 107
1098 XG Amsterdam

Roland Dries received his engineering degree in Biochemistry from the University of applied sciences in Utrecht (NL), his M.Sc. degree in Biology (Evolutionary Genetics: Simulations) at the Utrecht University (NL) and his M.Sc. Degree in Computational Science (Physics-based Biological Simulations) at the University of Amsterdam (NL). He has worked over 12 years as scientific support at the Dutch institute for Atom and Molecule Physics, where he maintained and serviced a biochemistry lab and microscopy systems, and at the Delft University of Technology, in the department of Applied Physics, section Bionanoscience. In 2013 he joined the Computational Science Lab at the University of Amsterdam, to work on the Swarm-Organ project.
