Background and activities

I'm working as a post doctoral researcher in the research group of inflammation and genetics in pregnancy at CEMIR, IKM. My research interest includes inflammation in placenta and decidua to address local and systemic involvement in normal and pre-eclamptic pregnancy. 

I completed a master in pathobiology and toxicology at the Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands. I obtained a Ph. D in 2013 entitled ‘Inflammation: a link between metabolic syndrome and osteoarthritis?’ at the University of Leiden and TNO, the Netherlands.
