Teuntje got her bachelor's degree in bioinformatics at HAN. She immediately started her master's Bioinformatics at Wageningen University. After graduation, she worked as a bioinformatics lecturer at HAN. While working as a lecturer, she worked on her own research project focussing on phylogenetics, multiple sequence alignments, and Hidden Markov Models. She got curious about working as a full-time data scientist, so she applied for the data scientist position at Brainial.
Outside of work you can either find Teuntje in her CrossFit box, behind a good book, or she is engaged in activities with friends like doing mud runs or escape rooms.
