I studied Biomedical Sciences in Leiden, The Netherlands at the LUMC from which I received my Masters degree in 2008. On February 5th 2013 I received my PhD also from the Leiden University. I currently work as the head of the Clinical Epidemiology team at the Center for Stroke research at Charité Universitätsmedizin (www.strokecenter.de) . I also work closely with the people at QUEST at the Berlin Institute of Health. I am still affiliated with my old team at the department of clinical epidemiology in Leiden the Netherlands as visiting researcher.
Besides my work as a scientist I am interested in some other aspects of academic life such as teaching epidemiology (both undergraduate and graduate courses). I am also interested in research integrity and science as a community. Besides teaching, I regularly moderate debates on science and related topics.
I am a fellow of the European Stroke Organisation (ESO), a member of the world stroke organisation (WSO), the Dutch Society of Thrombosis and Hemostasis (NVTH), the International Society of thrombosis (ISTH), and the Dutch society against quackery (NVTK), and the Netherlands Epidemiologic Society (VVE, board member between 2012 and 2014). I used to blog for their causality focusgroup, which is a group of Dutch epidemiologists interested in causality research (now dormant). Additionally, I am an associate editor for the BMC Thrombosis Journal, member of the editorial board of the new ISTH journal RPTH, and a regular reviewer for several national and international journals. I was member of the Junior Advisory Board of the European Conference on Thrombosis and Hemostasis (ECTH) in 2016 and 2018 edition. I am a member of the local organizing committee of the REWARD | EQUATOR 2020 conference in Berlin.
