I am an athlete, applied sport scientist and strength and conditioning specialist from Gronsveld, The Netherlands. I'm currently also lecturing at Fontys University of Applied Sports Sciences and persuing my PhD at Maastricht University.
- As an athlete, I have won multiple medals at the national championships, including a gold medal at the national championship 3000m indoor in 2017.
- As an applied sport scientist, I have written multiple peer-reviewed scientific publications about a variety of sport science topics. I do however have a special interest in the transfer effects of training on sports performance and injury prevention.
- As a strength and conditioning specialist I have trained individuals ranging from the elite to recreational level. I do have a special interest in sports that involve running.
I have done a bachelor in applied sport sciences at Fontys University and a master Human Movement Sciences at Maastricht University. I'm currently writing my own PhD proposal. Because of my background in applied sport sciences and my experience as an athlete and strength and conditioning specialist I developed a good understanding of practical issues. According to others I can therefore translate theoretical concepts very well into practical applications. Although some of my peer-reviewed publications include fundamental topics, I make sure to always discuss the practical applications of the findings.
