Personal profile

Personal profile

The focus of my research is on innovation in public health, more specifically in preventive perinatal and child healthcare. In my research, I apply scientific methods on societally relevant problems, making use of my extensive practical experience and network. Examples of research projects are: the so-called Soundchec projects; the Academic Collaborative Centre Youth in Twente (AWJT) projects on child abuse, postpartum depression and poverty; the Pregnancy and childbirth project; the Models of Child Health Appraised (MOCHA) project.

I teach classes in epidemiology and innovation in public health for university students at all levels (bachelor, master, PhD). Regular courses are: Epidemiology, part of the module ‘Health, Disease & Prevention’ in the bachelor curriculum Health Sciences; Innovation in Public Health for master students Health Sciences.
