About Jac

I am a biologist from the Faculty of Science and Mathematics of the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands. I graduated in 1971 and obtained my PhD in Biology of the same University in 1981. My PhD research was carried out in Indonesia, in a joint project between the University of Utrecht and the University of Bogor Indonesia, on Plant Physiology and Crop Protection. This activity involved teaching and research in which many students from Indonesia and from all over the Asian region were involved.

My professional career started with the Dutch pharmaceutical company Duphar, aligned with the Philips company. I was responsible for the discovery of new crop protection products. In that activity I traveled all over the world especially the Americas. In 1995 I moved to the USA and started to work for the company Uniroyal in Connecticut, also in the field of Crop Protection and including Product Stewardship.

In 2007 I retired and started to volunteer at the Boston Public High School BCLA in the three science disciplines Biology, Chemistry and Physics and in Mathematics. In this activity I attend classes every day, assist the science teachers and helped out students. I am involved in the BPE (Boston Partners in Education) tutoring program Aim High, which concentrates on preparing students for the MCAS Science and Math tests and helping them in their homework.

I have become well aware of the problems High School students face in the science disciplines, and find satisfaction in guiding them in mastering these disciplines.
