I am an Assistant Professor and Internist-endocrinologist in Prof.dr. André Uitterlinden's lab at Erasmus MC and in dr. Natasha Appelman-Dijkstra's lab at Leiden University Medical Center, The Netherlands. In addition, I am a free-lance clinician. My research area is the clinical application of novel diagnostic methods for personalized internal medicine, with a special focus on genomics, exposomics and radiological imaging. Most of my studies have been in the fields of musculoskeletal and endocrine disease (osteoporosis and diabetes-related bone disease).
