I work as a researcher at the department of Primary Care. I will contribute to two EU-projects within the domain of the Learning care systems. The first one is HarmonicSS, which focuses on the early identification of Sjögren patients using data from EPDs. The second is Taxinomisis, for which EPDs are used to predict risks and consequences of carotid artery disease. I will also contribute to research on the primary health care on Aruba, for which the organization, accessibility, and patient experiences regarding primary health care are studied.
After getting my Master’s degree in 2011 I worked as a data analyst on a sleep apnea study, for which I developed and validated a screening instrument commissioned by Philips Healthcare. After traveling for a while I started as a researcher at the University of Twente in 2013. In this position I combined my work as a Data Manager for the IGS Datalab with my PhD research. For the Datalab I advised and supported researchers and students on data analysis and data management. My PhD research is focused on the development of classification models to screen for psychiatric disorders, monitor treatments, and predict patient recovery on the basis of written and spoken text data. In 2018 I worked as a data scientist at Rijnstate Hospital on a temporary project on the prediction of patient readmissions using EPD data. The rest of 2018 I focused on finishing my dissertation, which I hope to defend in 2019.
