As manager international research projects I like to stengthen research that fits the research strategy of a researcher. I enable a route trough the complex network of processes that link to research funding and I like to simplify this route by showing the right direction, so researchers can focus on the scientific content.
I obtained my doctorate in tumorimunology from the Vrije Universiteit van Amsterdam. During my work as a postdoctoral researcher I noticed I like to work on the research funding application and I started working as a grant writer in a commercial company in 2010. I worked there for over 6 years and worked on research funding applications on watertechnology and life sciences. In 2016 I started as a research program manager in the UMCU, mainly in the Orthopaedic department and the strategic focus area Regenerative Medicine and Stems Cells. In the UMCU I worked on every thing that relates to research funding from idea to finishe project, both on content as well as finances. I also work as an expert evaluator for H2020, MCSA-IF and Eurostars.
