Research interests

My research focuses on health communication and decision-making in different clinical areas, such as cardiovascular disease and oncology, using a range of research methods including video-observations, qualitative interviews, experimental studies and randomised controlled trials. I have a special interest in (shared) decision-making among older adults and their clinicians. The ultimate aim of my research is to optimize health communication and decision-making by developing practical interventions for patients as well as clinicians.
