30 August 2020

Could you tell us something about your work at the department?
I started my PhD at Amsterdam UMC under supervision of Laurien Buffart in January 2017 and I will finish my PhD at the end of 2021 at the department of Physiology. I am currently working on the ‘Physical Activity and Dietary intervention in OVArian cancer (PADOVA) study’. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a combined exercise- and nutritional intervention in patients with ovarian cancer during chemotherapy. We started patient recruitment in Amsterdam in 2018 and will start recruitment in Radboudumc later this year. I hope to learn a lot about physiology from you and perhaps I can tell you more about nutrition (since I am a dietitian).
 
Could you describe yourself in a few words?
Empathetic, analytical, sociable.
 
What do you normally do in the weekends?
I go out for coffee/drinks/dinner, I enjoy sports, gardening (I have got 45 plants at home) and spending time with family and friends.
 
What are your hobbies, and can you tell us something about your favorite one?
My favorite hobby is CrossFit. CrossFit is a strength and conditioning workout that is made up of functional movements performed at a high intensity level. I really enjoy lifting heavy objects of the ground.
 
Could you describe your best holiday?
Last year I went on a holiday to Costa Rica with my father. The combination of beautiful nature and spending time with my dad made it a memorable holiday.
 
What is your dream for the future?
Of course, I would like to finish my PhD and continue working with oncology patients. Besides work, I would like to design my own tiny house or container home.
 
Please add a picture of yourself during a certain activity and add here a note explaining the photo: This picture is taken during a CrossFit work out.
