I received my PhD in Occupational Health Epidemiology in 2007, and worked as a postdoctoral researcher several years in Cancer Epidemiology and Psycho Oncology.In 2010, I was given the opportunity to combine both interests, primarily conducting and supervising quantitative and qualitative research in ‘Cancer and Work’. I was granted a 4-year fellowship from the Dutch Cancer Society in 2014, which enabled me to travel the world and establish new research collaborations within Psycho Oncology at large. Increasing the quality of life of cancer patients and survivors (both common and rare tumor types) not only has my focus in research, but also in other academic activities. I am the editor of the 4th edition of the ‘Handbook on Psychological Care in Oncology’.Further, I am an Associate Editor of the European Journal of Cancer Care and the Journal of Cancer Survivorship, a board member of Psycho Oncology, a member of the Survivorship Committee of the International Psycho Oncology Society, and a member of the assessment committee of the Dutch Cancer Society. I have supervised 11 PhD students, numerous Master students, published > 110 articles, contributed to book chapters, and received about €2.7 million funding.
