I studied Biomedical Sciences in Leiden, The Netherlands at the LUMC from which I received my Master’s degree in 2008 and my Ph.D. in 2013. After 6 years (2014-2020) as head of the Clinical Epidemiology team at the Center for Stroke Research at Charité Universitätsmedizin (www.strokecenter.de) and doing some cool projects with the people at QUEST, I returned to the LUMC to set up the “Quality and Integrity of Biomedical Research” program (more on this later).
Besides my work as a cardiovascular researcher, 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 as well as the rapid changes in the scientific enterprise. 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), and the Dutch society against quackery (NVTK), and the Netherlands Epidemiologic Society (VVE, board member between 2012 and 2014). I am one of the founders of the Berlin Epidemiological Methods Colloquium. Additionally, I am an academic editor at PLOS Biology, member of the editorial board of the international stroke journal, member of the editorial board of the 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 editions. I was a member of the local organizing committee of the REWARD | EQUATOR 2020 conference in Berlin.
