The 8th Board of Dentatus 



Emma Lombardo


Hey there!

Nice to see you on our website, I hope you find what you're looking for! I'm Emma, ​​​​​​President of Dentatus. I have a background in physics and joined EPA to put my scientific mindset to good use. I want EPA to be a cozy place for all students, where we can help each other through hectic times and make lovely memories in the fun times!

When I'm not studying, I'm usually playing music, hanging out with friends or dancing. I picked up playing the guitar during lockdown, but still go back to my piano and ocarina when no one's home.

My main role is to help everyone feel integrated in the group, which is not only EPA-peeps but everyone in Wijnhaven as well. I will do my best to make sure you leave your desk and don't overwork yourself! Despite deadlines and the heavy workload, I want you to enjoy your time as an EPA student. If you see me around, don't hesitate to chat with me, I'm always down for a coffee break!




Nachiket Kondhalkar


Hello There!

My name is Nachiket and I am the Secretary of the 8th board of Dentatus! I did my undergraduate studies at Mumbai University in Biomedical Engineering and a Masters in CBRN and National Security from Savitribai Phule Pune University. I was drawn to EPA because of an interesting philosophical approach of applying an engineering mindset to solve grand challenges. I live pretty much around the corner of the Wijnhaven building, which is one of the reasons why you will find me there quite often indulging in my coffee addiction. 

In my free time, you can find me tinkering with a variety of projects when I'm not lost in some sort of a fictional universe. If you feel like having a chat with me, feel free to contact me. I'm always up for a coffee :).






Thirza Bolhuis


My name is Thirza and I am the treasurer of Dentatus. I joined EPA after finishing the bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics and am also doing a second masters in Science Communication. 

 Being part of the Dentatus board has brought me a lot of joy, and has inspired me to be more active during my studies. 

 I manage the finances for Dentatus, and will make sure there is enough funding for all the fun activities to be organized during the year.





Commissioner of Education

Casper van Eijden

Hey guys,

I am the new Commissioner of Education for the EPA program! 

As commissioner I make it my priority to ensure education quality within the EPA program is maintained or even improved where possible. To achieve this goal I regularly talk with professors, Haiko and Özge, and other relevant people. Besides educational problems, as board liason to the ACoCo committee I also put time into facilitating community building on the fifth and the mental health of our students. Feel free to contact me or approach me on the fifth if you have issues or suggestions.
