My research focuses on effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions in those with musculoskeletal disorders.

My broad goals are to lessen the burden of neck and low back pain to society by providing high-quality scientific evidence. Past projects which I co-supervised and  are strongly embedded in clinical practice, include the PTED trial, Warrior Trial, and the IPD-project IPD meta-analysis on spinal manipulative therapy . Current projects include a large, international observational study in chiropractic care (BACE-C cohort study), as well as updates of various Cochrane reviews.

One of my passions lies in systematic reviews and meta-analysis as these types of overviews represent a crucial link in the practice of evidence-based health care. I am actively involved in conducting and supervising these reviews, including a role on the Associate Editorial Board of the Cochrane Back and Neck Review Group.

My research is embedded in APH research institute and Amsterdam Movement Sciences.



I am the course coordinator for the EpidM systematic reviews and meta-analysis course, among other teaching assignments. My mission is to promote evidence-based health care.

As a researcher and scientist, I believe that I have an important role in training future researchers to conduct systematic reviews in order for them to appropriately apply the principles of evidence-based care. This can lead the path towards implementing effective treatment strategies and de-implementing those which are ineffective or even harmful.
