Currently (2022) I am 1) Assistant Professor at Erasmus MC at the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, lab of prof. G.M. Ribbers; and 2) Postdoctoral Researcher at University of Twente, Biomedical Signals & Systems department, lab of prof. P.H. Veltink.
The consortium projects that I coordinate (e.g., ArmCoach4Stroke, ATTRACTIF) are focused on developing sensor-based technology for enabling home-based arm rehabilitation after stroke with remote supervision by therapists.
I coordinate projects with intense collaboration between different academic partners (e.g., Erasmus MC, University of Twente, TU Delft, Amsterdam UMC), rehabilitation centers (e.g., Rijndam Rehabilitation), companies (e.g., Umaco/Lode, 2M Engineering), technicians, funding agencies (e.g., NWO, ZonMw, DCVA, Health Holland), clinicians/therapists, and patient groups (e.g., stroke).
I currently (co-)supervise postdocs, PhD students, master students, and bachelor students of the Erasmus MC, University of Twente, and TU Delft.
In 2021, I served as Guest Editor for the Sensors special issue entitled 'Wearable Movement Sensors for Rehabilitation: from technology to clinical practice' (Link to the special issue of Sensors).
