Board 2022-2023

Below you can see the members of the 68th board behind our Study Association 

President - Charlotte Sinia

Hi there! I am Charlotte Sinia, 20 years old and in my third year of the Bachelor Biotechnology. In my first year of studying, due to covid I hadn’t gotten to know the wonders of our beautiful study association. In my second year, however, I’ve found many friendships and a welcome place within CODON. Now, I am the proud president of the 68th board of CODON, which makes me responsible that everything runs smoothly within the board and all the tasks get done. Together with the other board members, I want to encourage students, both old and new, to join the association and find their own place within Wageningen. Besides CODON, I like to play sports, make music, and meet with friends. If you want to ask something or have a nice chat, I am in the Hok every Thursday during lunch!

Secretary - Thomas Schotman

Hello, my name is Thomas Schotman and I am the secretary of the 68th CODON board. I’m 19 years old and currently in my second year of the bachelor Biotechnology. As secretary I maintain our email and document the board meetings. The part of being secretary I like the most is writing our weekly mail because it’s something you can put your own twist on. Last year I quickly got fairly involved with the study association because there wasn’t that much else to do because of covid. Before I joined the board I was already part of a few committees, I was the treasurer for the first years weekend for example. This year I wanted to do more for the association which is why I joined the board. When I’m not working on my study or CODON I like to do sports and hang out with friends. I’m always in the hok on Monday during the lunch break but whenever I don’t have anything else to do I usually hang out or work there too so feel free to come by.

Treasurer - Tim van de Waterlaat

Hey everyone! I am Tim van de Waterlaat, 21 years old and in my third year of the bachelor of Biotechnology. This year, I will be the treasurer of CODON. This makes me responsible for the finances of CODON. For example, I ensure that invoices are paid on time and check on the committee treasurers. I keep an eye on the budget to see which new and exciting activities are possible. I try to make CODON even better with the other board members. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me or come by the Hok on Tuesdays during lunch!

Commissioner of Internal Affairs - Vicky van der Burgt

Hey, my name is Vicky van der Burgt and I am the Commissioner of Internal Affairs in the CODON board. I’m in my second year of the biotechnology bachelor. When I started this study, I found myself immediately interested in the study association. I’ve met a lot of CODON members already, as I joined several committees, which I love to spend my time on. I wanted to do more for the association, therefore I joined the board. As the Commissioner of Interal Affairs I’ll make sure that all internal committees run smoothly and that they set up and execute the activities properly. The thing I love the most about my function is getting to know even more CODON members! Besides the board, I enjoy playing the drums for the CODON band, go to parties and relax with my friends. I do not have a fixed day at The Hok, but If you want to ask something or have a coffee, I’ll be in The Hok often in the lunch. Feel free to contact me!

Study Commisioner - Roel van den Enden

Hey everybody, My name is Roel van den Enden and I’m the study commissioner of the 68 board of CODON. I’m 19 years old and in my second year of studying Biotechnology. As study commissioner I will try to improve the quality of education with help from the educational team of Biotechnology, the other study commissioners at the WUR and of course your input. I will try to arrange the facilities so everyone has the right tools to improve their studying.


I am responsible for all the matters concerning the study, which includes the organizing of orientation days for High School students who are enthusiastic about Biotechnology. These organizing of orientation days, along with a bunch of other things, like workshops, are done together with the Studcie.
I am also trying to get all of the CODON parents involved by organizing a parent day once a year with help from the Ouderdagcie, to let the parents know what their children are learning during lectures and practicals.

In the time that is left after all my duties as study commissioner, I like to listen to music or relax in the Hok.  On Fridays I am always is the Hok so if you have any questions concerning the study, send me an e-mail. Or just come by to relax after a week of hard studying.
