Welcome to my personal webpage!
Currently I work as a statistical researcher at Statistics Netherlands.
Previously I was a postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University, working with Mara Yerkes on her ERC project CAPABLE. Within this project I focused on cross-national analyses of work-life balance and (self-reported) health and well-being using cross-sectional and longitudinal survey data (including the development of a cross-national questionnaire with questions to measure an individual’s capability). Before that, I was a Research Scientist at the Laboratory of Population Health at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research. Here, I was involved in several projects focusing on social determinants of health and life expectancy, mainly focusing on education, and work and family factors. My PhD in Public Health from the Erasmus MC focused on the contribution of inequalities in work-family factors and socioeconomic status to the US health disadvantage.
