I joined HEDS as a modeller in October 2018 after two-year post-doctoral fellowship in the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organization. Prior to this I was employed by the Erasmus University Rotterdam, School of Health Policy and Management, were earlier (2015) I defended my PhD. My path to science was long, and I have a seven-year experience in pharmaceutical business organizations. Starting from Manager in Pharmacoeconomics and growing to the Head of the Market Access Department, I was employed by such global companies as Janssen-Cilag, Merck, and Sanofi. Within HEDS I specialise in public health-related modelling projects, focussing particularly upon modelling of cancer prevention and early detection.
