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.

Educational interests

Erasmus University EUR
With a population of over 600,000, Rotterdam is the second largest city in the Netherlands and the centre of the Rotterdam-The Hague metropolis. It's famous for its port, one of the biggest in Europe. The River Maas runs through our 'skyscraper city' with its innovative architecture. Behind the modern skyline, you'll find a nice, even 'cosy' historic city centre.
