Personal information

In 1996, I graduated in Medical Biology at the VU University Amsterdam. After my graduation I joined the department Biology and Society as a researcher. Next, I became a PhD student and wrote my PhD thesis on institutionalisation of an interactive approach to technological innovation (defence 2004). My research aims to provide insight into themes related to inter- and transdisciplinary research and to prepare students for conducting inter- and transdisciplinary research. My current research is focused on 1) methodology development for interactive policy and interactive technology development in the field of (international) public health (aiming to improve acces to health care especially in low- and middle income countries and, 2) development of educational approaches and innovations in health and life science education aiming to prepare students for inter- and transdisciplinary research.  Moreover, I lead the Broader Mind Community Service Learning (CSL) Team of the VU University, which aims to involve CSL within all programs of the VU. I am also Program director of the Master Management Policy-Analysis and Entrepreneurship in the Health and Life Sciences and Master Biomedical Sciences. Furthermore, I am member of the International Academic Board of the Dutch Royal Tropical Institute.
