My research interests include mathematical models for infectious diseases.
My specific interests are MRSA and ways to estimate the importance of infection routes.
In December 2007 I received a VENI grant for the proposal
Mathematical tools in support of infection
prevention on which I am working since April 2008, both at the
Mathematical Institute of Utrecht University and at the
Julius Center for Health Sciences and
Primary Care of the UMC Utrecht.
From April 2005 to April 2008 I have been involved in the NWO project:
Data driven multi level models of infectious diseases.
In June 2010. I received a ZonMW grant in
the the Priority Medicines Antimicrobial Resistance Research
Programma on the proposal "Controlling nosocomial spread
of ESBL-producing bacteria: Guidance of prevention by way of mathematical
From September 2005 to September 2006 I spend a year at
the department of infectious disease epidemiology of Imperial College London
were I have been working with Neil
on models for the effect of social distance measures (closure of schools, churches, theaters..) on the spread of pandemic influenza.
