Expertise

I have a position as Program Director (Bachelor Psychology) and 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 100 full-text publications in Pubmed. A combination of hypothesis-driven epidemiological studies and good understanding of mechanisms from randomised controlled trials is essential to progress scientific knowledge.
