Biographical sketch
In 2003 I graduated from Leiden University as a Neuropsychologist. Since 2010 I am working for the department of Medical Psychology and Psychotherapy as a junior researcher and Phd student. In 2010 I also started a Master of Science in Epidemiology. In 2012 I have also finished several courses in: International Good Clinical Practice, Family Communication about Organ Donation and Transplantation and Multisystemic Therapy.

Research interests
My research interests are mainly focused on intervention strategies to improve decision-making processes for end-stage renal disease patients regarding their possible treatment options. Currently I am implementing a home-based intervention to 1) improve decision-making for patients and their loved ones and 2) to reduce inequality in the numbers living donor kidney transplantations between European and non-European patients.

Erasmus University Rotterdam
Starting your PhD
From molecule to human to society and back

Is the healthcare provided in Rotterdam the same as in a village? How can we detect arteriosclerosis at an early stage? How are creativity and psychiatric disorders connected? How does air pollution affect unborn children? Erasmus MC and Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management work together on societal issues concerning health. The forces of clinical science, health science and biomedical science are combined here.
