I was born and raised in The Netherlands, a small country in Northwestern Europe. During my Biology studies at Wageningen University & Research I became interested in medical entomology. Some of the highlights of those days are testing fungi for the control of malaria mosquitoes, rearing head lice on my arm for several months, and searching for ticks in the dense jungle of Central Panama. During my PhD research I was introduced in the field of arbovirology, and I became fascinated by interactions between viruses and their mosquito vectors. Now I have a broad background in mosquito ecology, ranging from mosquito surveillance and modeling, to virus-infection studies and behavioral assays in the biosafety level 3 laboratory. I enjoy to involve the general public in my research, which resulted in a citizen science project to monitor mosquito presence and nuisance in The Netherlands (www.muggenradar.nl). Currently, I am a member of the advisory board of the European Society for Vector Ecology, which allows me to keep a strong bond with my network in Europe. I very much like to be challenged in my daily life, and have a passion for adventure, traveling, and sports.
