About me

After I studied Biomedical Sciences (major in Human Movement Sciences) at the Radboudumc, I started my Ph.D. at the Orthopaedic Research Laboratory in September 1995. In June 2001 I graduated for my Ph.D. on a thesis entitled “Mechanical Regulation of Bone Development” and since then I’m working for the ORL. In 2014 I was appointed as Associate professor ‘onderwijs in beweging’.

Educational activities

As Principal Lecturer and mentor for the RIHS I’m involved in many educational activities such as coordinating the minor ‘Moving questions: an introduction to Clinical Human Movement Sciences’; the ‘Radboud Student Conference‘ and the Master course ‘Orthopedic Biomechanics in motion’. Also I am member of the Education Management Team 1 of the Bachelor’s program Biomedical Sciences and Medicine.

Research Impression

My research activities lie in the field of Biomechanics. In my research line we aim to improve the prediction in femoral and vertebral fracture risk in patients with bone metastases by developing patient specific computer models, i.e. non linear finite element models. In addition our goal is to implement a new and fast tool for fracture risk prediction in a clinical setting. I have also been supervising PhD students who work on this research line.
