Research interests

My practical and theoretical background enables me to take an integrative omics approach to identify driver genetic alterations, genes and biological pathways that are relevant for the pathophysiological behaviour and treatment response of tumors and rapidly translate these findings to clinical practice.

In addition to my training as a medical doctor, I completed one full year of Mathematics and Computer Science, after which I continued to obtain my MSc degree in Cognitive Science and Engineering.

In parallel to my medical studies, I worked for several years as a bio-informatician at the Department of Genetics, UMCG. In 2010, I obtained my PhD on high dimensional data analysis for new insights into ovarian cancer phenotypes, after which I continued as an affiliated post-doc at the Departments of Genetics and Medical Oncology (UMCG).

I followed the residency program in Internal Medicine / Medical Oncology and now work as a medical oncologist (staff member) at the department of Medical Oncology at the UMCG. In addition, I am a principal investigator at the Cancer Research Center Groningen in the research programmes: ‘Guided Treatment in Optimal Selected Cancer Patients (GUTS)’ and ‘Damage and Repair in Cancer Development and Cancer (DARE)’.
