He works as a consultant neonatologist in Utrecht. In 2015, he finished his Ph.D. in medicine with the title ‘Cardiac Biomarkers in neonatology’. Currently, he is investigating the possibilities of Big Data in neonatal medicine, in the Big Data for Small Babies project.

Future research will be directed to bringing algorithms to clinical care in newborn medicine.
