“Research in health and food is converging. The pharmaceutical industry is looking at the impact of components in nutrition, while nutrition industries are building more expertise in the health effects of their products. Therefore, companies increasingly rely on areas that fit NIZO’s expertise, particularly in integrative big-data analytics, relevant for the microbiome, proteins, metabolites and more.”

Before joining NIZO food research in August 2016, I spent three years at Darling Ingredients as CEO of Rousselot, the global market leader in gelatin for pharmaceutical and food applications. Previously, I held various international management and executive positions at Royal DSM NV with a focus on ingredients for the global pharmaceutical, infant nutrition and food industries. I hold an MSc in Bio-organic Polymers from Leiden University. To NIZO I bring an extensive track record of driving improved business performance, change management and implementation of strategic initiatives focused on operational excellence and innovation. I look forward to innovating together with you!
