I’m a senior consultant Advanced Analytics at Crystalloids, The Netherlands, and a visiting researcher at the Methodology & Statistics group of the University of Utrecht. I’m specialized in statistical modeling using Bayesian inferential methods. My technical interests are in Big Data, personalized predictions, and the use of prior knowledge. Previously, I was an assistant professor in methods & statistics at the University of Twente, and a senior statistician at TNO, a large institute for applied science in the Netherlands. I’ve applied my statistical knowledge in a wide variety of application fields. Furthermore, I love coaching, writing and applying my personal and organisational skills within multidisciplinary environments.
On a sportive note
Shortly after I was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 at the end of 2006, I became an ambassador for the Bas van de Goor Foundation. Bas won a gold medal with his volleyball team at the Olympics in Atlanta, 1996, and was diagnosed with diabetes type 1 during his professional sports career. With his foundation and enthousiasm, he tries to raise awareness and show diabetics that sports can make a positive difference in managing your health and diabetes. I love doing sports and I’ve experienced the positive benefits for my diabetes myself, so I fully support Bas his cause.
