Could you tell us something about your work at the department?
In November I started my PhD at the integrative physiology group, in collaboration with the cardiology department. My project will focus on physical activity in patients with congenital aortic valve stenosis, mainly bicuspid aortic valve disease. The first study we have started will focus on the association between lifelong physical activity and disease severity in these patients.

Could you describe yourself in a few words:
Enthusiastic, optimistic, reliable, organized.

What do you normally do in the weekends?
It depends what is classified as ‘normal’ in this COVID pandemic.
I like to spend my weekends with friends and family. In COVID times I enjoy to go for a walk or run and a few weeks ago I started a tennis course again.

What are your hobbies and can you tell us something about your favorite one?
I like to cook and maybe eating delicious food even more 😉. Italian and Asian are my favorite cuisines. Furthermore I love to travel in- and outside Europe. Since the COVID pandemic I appreciate the lovely places in our own country even more.

Could you describe your best holiday?
This is a difficult question.. The perfect holiday is a combination of outdoor activities, new cultures and relaxing activities. And delicious food of course!
It is hard to choose my favorite one, but a special holiday was 3 years ago. I travelled with my family to Namibia and Botswana where we made a self-drive round trip with jeeps and rooftop tents. Enjoying wild life, magnificent landscapes and sleeping in the middle of nature was amazing.  

What is your dream for the future?
Work-related, my dream of the future is to successfully complete my PhD and become a cardiologist. Personally, I want to stay happy and healthy 😊
