Short CV

In 2016, I graduated from the University of Utrecht with a master’s degree in Medicine. During the last year of my study, I enrolled in a multidisciplinary dedicated transitional year with a focus on anaesthesiology, cardiology, intensive care medicine and respiratory medicine. I did my research electives in the UMC Utrecht under the supervision of prof. D.W. de Lange in the field of sepsis. We looked at the value of certain biomarkers for diagnosing sepsis and predicating mortality. Therefore, the program of the European Sepsis Academy “Towards new biomarkers to improve sepsis management” tailored exactly to my research interest and I am now thrilled to be part of the project.
