Research interests

I am primarily interested in improving the diagnostic yield of genome sequencing of patients who have a rare disease. I do this by integrating population genetics and transcriptomics.


Improving the diagnostic yield of exome-sequencing by predicting gene-phenotype associations using large-scale gene expression analysis

Identification of context-dependent expression quantitative trait loci in whole blood

Calling genotypes from public RNA-sequencing data enables identification of genetic variants that affect gene-expression levels

A first update on mapping the human genetic architecture of COVID-19

Author Correction: Common and rare variant association analyses in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis identify 15 risk loci with distinct genetic architectures and neuron-specific biology (vol 53, pg 1636, 2021)

Idéfix: identifying accidental sample mix-ups in biobanks using polygenic scores

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis in the Dutch general population

Increased genetic contribution to wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic

TAB2 deletions and loss-of-function variants cause a Noonan-like syndrome with mitral valve disease, cardiomyopathy and hypermobility
