My roots are in the northern part of the Netherlands, where I was born in 1977 in Groningen. After graduating from secondary school (Gymnasium Leeuwarden), I started studying medicine at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen in 1996 and graduated as a medical doctor in 2002.

After completing my vocational training in general practice / family medicine, I decided to leave Groningen and started a PhD-traject in Utrecht. Shortly before I finished my thesis, I started working as a general practitioner in Amsterdam. I combine this clinical work with research activities at the Julius Center.
