Personal profile

Research interests

The main goals of my research are to understand how functional impairments caused by cancer(-treatment) impact peoples' functioning in daily life, and consequently their quality of life; how these impairments can be measured; and how they can be prevented or mitigated by targeted and timely offered rehabilitation interventions,  exercise in particular. In addition,  I aim to support implementation of successful interventions into usual care, through research into the perspectives of patients and health care professionals, and via innovative care implementation projects.
