Linda Holtman




Lecturer; I give courses for all three divisions of the LACDR

Works at LACDR since:


Works at LACDR because: 

I like to teach and I like to work on how to implement didactics to improve education. Meanwhile there is ample opportunity to maintain a close connection to research! At the LACDR I have the chance to do all of that, at the study program Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences, which I have studied myself as well!

Favourite childhood memory:

Spending my summer holidays with the Croatian part of the family in my grandparent’s summerhouse in the mountains of Gorski Kotar (Croatia).

Best quality:

I’m always willing to help someone.

Worst quality:

I’m not too patient…

When I am off, I:

Love to spend time outdoors with my husband and two daughters or go horse-riding in the dunes and on the beach: you can regularly find me riding anywhere between Katwijk and Scheveningen.

Next scheduled holiday: 

Tyrol, Austria: hiking at its best!

Favourite sport:


Favourite music:

Everything from dance/EDM to pop to classical (piano) music. And I need to admit: 90s music.

Must-see series:

I just finished Band of Brothers: eerily accurate and I learned so much more about WWII history.

Favourite books:

I love Fantasy books, with David Eddings being my favorite Fantasy-author.

On my wish-list:

So many travel destinations! And chocolate.
