I studied at the University of Amsterdam, where I received degrees in clinical psychology and medial biology. I received my Ph.D. from the VU University, Department of Biological Psychology. My Ph.D. thesis was on the heritability of cognition of pre-adolescents. My current work focuses on the health-related quality of life (HRQL) of cancer survivors. I have completed an international feasibility study of the HRQL of long-term survivors of testicular and prostate cancer who were treated in the context of EORTC phase III clinical trials. In the next project, I have developed and evaluated an internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy program to alleviate treatment-induced menopausal symptoms in patients with breast cancer, "EVA-online". Recently, we have evaluated the effectiveness of this intervention in a randomized controlled trial. Currently, I coordinate the development of an HRQL questionnaire for disease free cancer survivors within the EORTC quality of life group.
