Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Medical Doctor and Molecular Epidemiologist working at the Department of Epidemiology, in Erasmus MC. I am currently holding the position of Associate Professor and the Principal Investigator of the "Molecular & Systems Epidemiology" research line, where I lead a dynamic research team comprising several MSc, PhD, and Postdoc as well as lab technicians. Within this role, I'm also coordinating the 'omics' data in the population-based Rotterdam Study cohort, as well as managing the family-based Erasmus Rucphen Family (ERF) study. My research primary focuses on investigating genetic determinants and identifying novel biomarkers for complex diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, type 2 diabetes, and fatty liver disease. My research approach involves the integration of multi-omics data derived from large-scale epidemiological studies, employing advanced analytical methods and conducting cutting-edge molecular and cellular model studies to enhance our understanding of mechanims underlying age-related diseases. In addition to my research responsibilities, I am actively involved in teaching various courses offered by the Netherlands Institute for Health Sciences (NIHES).
