She teaches a causal inference course that she proposed and developed (for undergraduates, MS students, and PhD students), and she also teaches other Statistics courses. She does research on causal inference and survival analysis, with PhD students in Mathematics and Statistics and with PhD students in Biostatistics, and with other collaborators. Her application areas are HIV, bacterial infections, HCV, overdoses, and mother and child health. She obtained her PhD in Mathematical Statistics from the Free University of Amsterdam (2001). Before her PhD, she worked as an MS statistician in the Amsterdam Medical Center, and after her PhD, she was a postdoc in mathematical statistics (Utrecht) and then medical statistics (Leiden), all in The Netherlands. In 2005 she became a visiting scholar at the Departments of Epidemiology and Biostatistics of the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, and in 2006 an Assistant Professor and then an Associate Professor of Biostatistics at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, until 2018.
