My job at PEARL
PhD/Embedded Scientist

Which means…
I am an embedded scientist at Feyenoord Academy. I investigate the association between injuries and external and internal load of elite youth soccer players. I collect data on a daily basis, analyze the data and provide feedback to the coaches and medical staff via our online monitoring system PAHM (Performing artist and Athlete Health Monitor).

I am fascinated by…
I admire Ruud van Nistelrooy, one of the best strikers the Netherlands has produced. How he overcame two serious knee injuries and returned to top level is extraordinary. Winning the national leagues in the Netherlands, England and Spain and being topscorer in these three leagues in different circumstance show how good he was in coping with the environment. Next to this he has his own foundation where he supports (talent)development in all children.

Besides PEARL…
Fulltime sport enthusiast where I try all different kind of sports from judo to wakeboarding, and from swimming to skiing. At the moment I’m looking for a new opportunity to improve my movement vocabulary.
