    Host of this event

    After being the anchor of the daily morning show on the Dutch Caribbean channel “Nos Pais Television”, she now presents all kind of events in the Netherlands. Her passion is ‘human interest’ on various topics. She likes to use her own experience and knowledge on diversity and inclusion and at the same time gather more knowledge and insights. She will look for similarities and recognition instead of differences in order to create understanding for the other. “Empowerment is of great importance and shared stories always make you stronger!”

    I focus on global population level impact of rapidly spreading zoonotic virus infections, with special emphasis on foodborne transmission. My research focuses on unravelling the modes of transmission of viruses among animals and between animals and humans, and the use of pathogenic genomic information to unravel these pathways and to signal changes in transmission or disease impact. I am scientific coordinator of COMPARE, a large H2020 funded project (20 MEuro), exploring the potential uses of next generation sequencing techniques for outbreak detection and tracking (www.compare-europe.eu), and co-PI in the FP7 funded PREPARE project (www.prepare-europe.eu) aimed at building a pan-European operational network for rapid and large-scale European clinical research in response to infectious disease outbreaks with epidemic potential. I am the director of the WHO collaborating centre for emerging infectious diseases at Erasmus, and Scientific Director “Emerging infectious diseases” of the Netherlands Centre for One Health (www.ncoh.nl). I received the Infectious disease award of the Dutch Association for Infectious Diseases and is the recipient of the Stevin Premium 2018. In 2019, I became a member of the KNAW (Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences). I have co-authored >500 papers that have been cited > 20.000 times.
