She completed her PhD in End-of-Life Care at the VU Medical Center in Amsterdam, where she examined \"Care in the last three months of life\" for patients whose deaths were expected and non-sudden. Currently she works with Prof Sheila Payne, President of the EAPC, as a senior researcher on the EU funded EURO IMPACT project based at the International Observatory on End of Life Care in Lancaster University.
