Biography

Biography

I studied biomedical sciences at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, where I obtained my MSc with a specialisation in Health Technology Assessment and Toxicology in 2014. After working as a junior researcher at the department of Health Evidence of the Radboudumc, and briefly working as a consultant for KALCIO Healthcare, I started as a PhD student at the Epidemiology Methods team within the Julius Center.

My PhD focused on methodology for the evaluation of diagnostic tests and prediction models, with specific topics including overdiagnosis, expert panels as a reference standard, and modelling (potential) impact of diagnostic tests / models. During my PhD I completed the masters in Epidemiology training program, with a specialisation in clinical epidemiology. In november 2019 I defended my thesis and obtained my doctoral degree.

As of 2019 onward I have been working as an assistant professor within the epidemiology methods group and Cochrane Netherlands. My research focuses on methodology for diagnostic tests and prediction models, as well as methods for prioritisation. I collaborate and perform projects for organisations such as VWS, ZIN, NFU, and the WHO.

Alongside doing research I teach and am the course coordinator of several courses within the medicine, clinical health sciences, and epidemiology training programs. In addition, I am the education coordinator within the epidemiology department of the Julius Center. In this role I am responsible for tackling overarching educational challenges, finances, staffing, and am the chair of the Frits the Waard Penning award.
