I am an enthusiastic and driven technical physician; currently working as lecturer and
researcher at the University of Twente in the Cardiovascular and Respiratory Physiology (CRPH) group. I finished my master Technical Medicine in 2020, within the Medical Sensing and Stimulation track. During my PhD research I study human hemodynamics, since I find the analysis of complex problems and cardiovascular physiology fascinating. I can express my creativity and systematic way of thinking when programming, analysing and modelling. I find it important that my work is socially relevant, for example by directly improving patient care. With my passion for education and teaching I hope to also help, motivate and inspire others.
My research focuses on hemodynamic instability in critically ill patients, this a common and significant problem on the ICU. By the means of advanced signal analysis and computational modelling, we aim to unravel the underlying pathophysiology. In this way we can support clinicians in making the right treatment choice and therefore promote more personalized hemodynamic management.
UT Research Information System
Half of my appointment at the UT I dedicate to teaching in both the bachelor and master program of Technical Medicine. I'm involved in the education and projects of Module 2 (Pathophysiology) and 6 (Cardiorespiratory system) in the bachelor, where I use models and simulations to explain basic (patho)physiological concepts of the cardiovascular system. In the master I teach the technical medical skills courses Injections, Punctures & Catheterisations and Emergency Reasoning, were students learn how to, for example, do a venepuncture and systematically approach a patient case. Next to that, I’m also involved in the master course Circulation & Ventilation, which covers ICU monitoring and management. As a technical supervisor, I supervise bachelor assignments (TGO) and master students during their clinical (specialisation) internships in projects connected to my research interests.
