Postdoc eHealth

About Me

As a postdoc within the personalized eHealth programme of the University of Twente I am contributing to practical solutions with my background in nutrition, creativity and enthusiasm. I, for example, am involved in the Council of Coaches-project (http://council-of-coaches.eu/). 

Before coming to Enschede I studied Nutrition&Health at Wageningen University and did my PhD at the Division of Human Nutrition of Wageningen University. During my PhD I investigated how we can reduce eating rate and thereby make it easier for people to eat less. In my research I also considered ICT-solutions and contributed to the development of a 'wearable personal coach' (https://splendid-program.eu/).

I believe it is very important that people can make informed choices regarding their health and that they receive support to act upon these choices. It is my passion to make healthy choices easier and more enjoyable.
