She holds a master degree in biomedical sciences (cum laude, 1988). After her graduation she worked two years as a policy maker on biotechnology at the Directorate General International Cooperation (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dept. Research and Technology). In 1998 she obtained her PhD degree on the development of an interactive approach to include small-scale farmers in research agenda setting processes on biotechnology. Her current research is focused on (1) methodology development for responsible research and innovation and in particular facilitating public engagement in science, and (2) management of system change processes, in order to contribute to more equitable and inclusive innovation processes. Her research projects are in the domain of health and sustainable development.


She is a member of the board of the Netherlands graduate research school Science, Technology and Modern Culture (WTMC). Since 2012, she coordinates the Erasmus Mundus Joint Degree Program on Transdisciplinary Solutions to Global Health Challenges. She is a member of the Advisory Board of the Dutch Medicines Evaluation Board (CBG).


She coordinates, and teaches in, various courses of the Athena Institute. She has played a key role in the development of the master degree program ‘Management, Policy Analysis and entrepreneurship in the health and life sciences’ and the master specialization ‘International Public Health’ (within the master programs Health Sciences and Biomedical Sciences). She is Program Director of the research master degree program ‘Global Health’ and she is a member (and chair) of various educational boards, including the Examination Board of the Royal Tropical Institute.
