Division Manager Health
What truly makes me happy and motivated, is working in an environment that offers room for creative thinking and innovation. In addition, I value collaboration and team work, as well as result-oriented, applied research and science. I obtained my PhD in Gastrointestinal physiology, and have worked as postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pennsylvania before moving to a more applied scientific field within the industry. At NIZO, I can combine my scientific background with leading a team of scientific experts and research specialists in order help our customers identify new solutions and develop better products.
Currently, as Division Manager at NIZO, I am responsible for our Health division, where we focus in helping our customers:
- build their health claims,
- prevent and solve their food safety and quality issues,
- improve their fermentation processes and
- support in complex (microbiomics) data analysis by applying state-of-the art bioinformatic tools.
I enjoy combining people management, innovation and applied science in contributing towards better health and development of novel food formulas together with our customers.
