Before I became a clinical pathologist, I conducted my PhD research in the AMC. I worked as an independent scientific researcher at the LUMC for several years, which is where I developed my passion for molecular pathology of the gastrointestinal tract. This led me to further specialize in gastrointestinal cancer during my training as a clinical pathologist. I aim to improve oncological care by combining microscopic and molecular pathology to provide more accurate diagnoses, which can help develop an optimal treatment plan for every individual patient. There is no better place for me to accomplish this than the Netherlands Cancer Institute, where I have been working since 2017.
