Research Programs




I am a Senior Biostatistician in Clinical Trial Methodology working within the Department of Data Science and Biostatistics of the Julius Center. My interests lie in innovative clinical trial methodology (both development and application) and Bayesian adaptive methods in particular. I also act as a methodology assessor (seconded) for the Dutch Medicines Evaluation Board (College ter Beoordeling van Geneesmiddelen: CBG-MEB) and as statistical consultant for the RS virus research group at Wilhelmina Kinderziekenhuis. I am the secretary of the UMC Utrecht's internal DSMB.  

From July 2009 until April 2021 I worked at the Amsterdam UMC location VUmc as a researcher, a statistical consultant and methodology member of the hospital's institutional review board (METc).

I hold a PhD degree in Statistics from Eindhoven University of Technology (2007), a M.A. degree in Health Psychology from Tilburg University (2003) and a M.Sc. degree in Engineering Mathematics from Eindhoven University of Technology (2001). I have held postdoctoral research positions at the Southampton Statistical Sciences Research Institute S3RI (2007-2008) and TNO Quality of Life (2008-2009).
