After a master in molecular biology, I became an educationalist, worked as an (e)-learning consultant, and wrote my thesis about lifelong learning of veterinary professionals. At present, I am a researcher in the learning sciences within the medical domain.

Interests and Focus

I investigate how (upcoming) medical professionals learn at the workplace and how their professional performance could be supported and enhanced. Questions about informal interprofessional collaborative learning of professionals, especially for the purpose of connecting evidence, patient values and clinical expertise (EBM), are my primary research focus. I look at learning processes that occur at boundaries:

  • between professionals from different disciplines,
  • between professionals and lay people,
  • and between researchers and clinicians.

My work helps to realise sound interventions which facilitate learning in organisations and contributes to application of (biomedical) evidence.

I have a strong methodological interest in qualitative research methods. I have experience with realist reviews, video stimulated recall interviews, social network analysis and conversation analysis.


Side Activities

I am an associate editor of the journal BMC Medical Education. Also, I am a member of the Ethical Review board of the Dutch Association of Medical Education.
