Expertise

I have a position as Associate Professor (Universitair Hoofddocent) Diabetes Epidemiology at Tilburg University, Afdeling Medische en Klinische Psychologie, Center of Research on Psychology in Somatic Diseases (CORPS). I completed my MSc (1996) degree in Biomedical Health Sciences at the Radboud University Nijmegen and my PhD (2003) degree in Epidemiology, University College London, United Kingdom. During my PhD, I studied the risk of coronary heart disease in type 1 diabetes, mainly inflammatory markers and lipoprotein subclasses. My appointment at the Tilburg University allows me to link my experience in clinical epidemiology, nutritional epidemiology with psychological interventions. I carried out several meta-analyses and initiated new projects to study nutritional factors (from nutrients, foods and dietary patterns) in the development of diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. I have access to several large cohort studies and clinical trials. I obtained an International Award, the Wiebe Visser International Dairy Nutrition Prize, for my research on dairy products. So far, all my work led to >90 full-text publications. A combination of hypothesis-driven epidemiological studies and good understanding of mechanisms from randomised controlled trials is essential to progress scientific knowledge.
