Research interests

I am a Public Health Care physician and epidemiologist and have a passion for research on Life Cycle Public Health and DOHaD. In 2011 I defended my PhD thesis: ‘The Terneuzen Birth Cohort. Detection and prevention of overweight and cardiometabolic risk from infancy onward’. I continued this work by obtaining a TOP Prevention Grant (ZONMW) in order to develop dynamic prediction tools within GenerationR and the PIAMA-cohort to be implemented within Preventive Child Health Care. Additionally, I obtained several other grants on and/or are involved in other research topics, including 'Early life stress in preterm born children', 'HP4All', 'Transgenerational socio-economic health differences (TRANSSES)', Exposome and microbial pathways of growth and developmental problems', 'eHealth Preterm born children'. I aim at the translation of scientific evidence into Preventive Child Health Care practices in collaboration with child health care professionals, the academic collaborative centers and other partners. Currently, I supervise 6 PhD students. I give lectures and educate bachelor and master students.
