Personal profile

Personal information

I obtained a PhD in Medicine from the University of Amsterdam in 2001 on the relationship between pushing and pulling and musculoskeletal symptoms. Since 2001, I have been working as an assistant professor at the department of Human Movement Sciences of the Faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.  I teach courses on research methodology, epidemiology and statistics. My main research interests focus on the upper extremities in work, rehabilitation and sports. I am involved in research projects on baseball pitching, wheelchair basketball, mobility of older adults, occupational ergonomics and orthopaedics. Currently, I serve as an associate editor of IISE Transactions on Occupational Ergonomics and Human Factors. In addition, I am a member of the ethical review board of the Faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences.
