Senior Clinical Lecturer, based at MLW, Blantyre, Malawi. Honorary Senior Lecturer at College of Medicine in Malawi
I am a Dutch clinical epidemiologist trained at the University of Amsterdam (MD and PhD) and the Erasmus University in Rotterdam (MSc, clinical epidemiology). I did my PhD work on community-based studies on the epidemiology, treatment and prevention of malaria (1997-2001), at the CDC/KEMRI research unit in western Kenya and Malaria Epidemiology Branch at CDC in Atlanta, before finishing my medical training in Holland. I joined the malaria epidemiology unit of LSTM in early 2004 and am currently based at the Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Programme in Malawi where I lead the malaria epidemiology group.
