About me

Hi, I am Miriam!

I am a researcher in eHealth & Telemedicine. In my daily work I contribute to the design and evaluation of eHealth technologies for those with chronic diseases or age related impairments.

Next to it, I am the manager of the research program in Personalized eHealth Technology of the University of Twente (the Netherlands). This research program brings together several disciplines of the University of Twente (e.g. Computer Science, Biomedical Engineering & Design) to create innovative personalized eHealth services that substantially contribute to a sustainable, efficient and effective healthcare for all citizens, especially for those with chronic conditions.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to exchange ideas!
