I am urogynaecologist and associate professor, working at the Radboud University MC Nijmegen since 2005. In 2007 I have defended my PhD thesis on laparoscopic hysterectomy and postoperative recovery. Since then the research line focussed on urogynaecology: clinical evaluation studies, imaging, genetics in urogynaecology and more recently cell-matrix interactions. I have supervised nine PhD theses. A second focus is on pediatric gynaecology and especially surgery of congenital anomalies.
