Saskia + Wiebe

'Get your PhD, get packed, get out'

Saskia Lindhoud and Wiebe de Vos, recently took their PhDs in Fysical Chemistry
Falling in love on the job: that is the story of Saskia Lindhoud and Wiebe de Vos. A lab-love, sparked off over two years ago when they were both half way through their research at Fysko (Physical Chemistry and Colloid Science). The greatest moment so far was receiving their doctorates. Last week, on the same day, from the same professor. And now they've already moved to Bristol because Saskia got a job near there: 'At the University of Bath. I'm doing research on making shower gel more sustainable.'  You couldn't make it up. "Yes, shower gel in Bath."
