  • Honorary Senior Research Fellow

  • Faculty of Medical Sciences

I am a health scientist and I've completed my PhD and postdoctoral work in medical education at the University of Amsterdam. During my PhD I researched how to evaluate and improve learning climates in postgraduate medical education. I was also interested in understanding the link between learning climates and the safety of patient care as delivered by trainees. After my PhD, I continued working as a postdoctoral researcher and as co-supervisor of two PhD students. I was also a junior lecturer at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam where I designed, taught and evaluated undergraduate courses in biomedical sciences and health sciences. I currently works as a research fellow for the Research Department of Medical Education at University College London.
