Full Professor

About Me

I am recently appointed to the chair of Health Technology Implementation at the TechMed Center of the UTwente. Before, I was head and chair of the department of Physics and Medical Technology at the Amsterdam University Medical Center (VUmc). I received myMSc in Applied Physics at the Technical University Eindhoven in 1985 and my PhD in Medicine at the University Medical Center Utrecht in 1990.
My research interest and expertise started with medical laser applications and expanded to a broad range of surgical equipment and imaging modalities.

I have developed special imaging techniques for diagnostics and to study the interaction of equipment with the patient in view of safety, treatment quality and development of new applications. My advanced imaging facilities are being used for testing medical equipment of international companies. I am working in close collaboration with the clinical professionals and have practical experience in the OR assisting in surgery with complex technologies. I am active in patient safety, innovation and valorisation of new medical technology with several patents and devices being commercialized. I am author of over 150 papers, proceedings and book chapters.
