My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Amsterdam
THNK connection: THNKer , AMS Class 08


I dream of a world where children grow up healthy and happy. Such a world provides plenty opportunity for active play, inspiring education and nutritious and delicious foods. I love to practice yoga and yoga philosophy and dance radiantly around the world.


I am fascinated by why we do what we do, and how this affects health, with particular interest in youth. I combine my scientific expertise in human movement science and epidemiology to unravel working mechanisms using innovative methodologies, exploring unique intervention strategies and creatively combining multiple disciplines. I was awarded University Research Chair professor at VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam.


Growing up in a multicultural family, I learned to observe the world from various perspectives, enjoy diversity, believe in serendipity and search beyond the unexpected. This sculpted my unique scientific frame of mind.
