I am trained as a nutritionist and epidemiologist and obtained my Master’s degree from Wageningen University, the Netherlands. In 2014, I received my PhD from the VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands in 2014. In several national and international cohort studies I assessed associations of vitamin D and parathyroid hormone in relation to underlying mechanisms of cardiovascular health.
My research interests include nutrition and lifestyle determinants in the etiology of chronic diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases. I have a particular interest in how mineral metabolism disturbances affect cardiovascular disease risk.
During the last years, I gained extensive experience in doing independent and collaborative research including, statistical analyses and interpretation of data, drafting scientific manuscripts and presentation of research findings at national and international conferences. Furthermore, I am working on several side projects related to diabetes and supervising several students (working groups, practical’s, tutor, and supervision of BSc-thesis projects).
