I am Professor of Health Informatics at the MRC Health eResearch Centre for North England (, University of Manchester.

My background is in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence. After completing my PhD I worked at the Department of Medical Informatics of the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Currently I have co-authored over 100 scientific publications in health informatics, artificial intelligence, and epidemiology.

My research focuses on improving quality and safety of healthcare using methods and tools from the fields of informatics, statistics and artificial intelligence. From 2003 to 2014, I have led a large initiative on quality improvement in cardiac rehabilitation in the Netherlands (called CARDSS), which involved a collaboration between more than 30 hospitals, the Dutch patients’ organization for cardiovascular disorders, a large number of professional societies, several academic research groups and three healthcare IT companies.

I have co-organized international workshops on intelligent data analysis in biomedicine in 2005, 2006, and 2011, and I am the president of the Society for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine (AIME) which organizes an international conference on that topic every two years.
