Bioinformatics and machine learning to study sarcomas | Machine learning in healthcare | Meta-research



I completed my MD/PhD at Leiden University. During my clinical rotations I focused on surgical pathology where I did my senior elective internships. For my graduate research I combined computational biology with molecular biology to study sarcomas. My research projects have included discovery of novel translocations using next generation sequencing and creating cell models for sarcomas. This research resulted in several high impact first author publications and I was awarded funding for my postdoctoral research at Stanford University. Next to my work as a researcher I am interested in entrepreneurship. I was runner-up in the Philips Innovation awards and I helped build Evidencehunt, a service that helps clinicians stay up to date on recent clinical literature.
