Research Interest:

My current interests lie in the research of determinants of treatment trajectories and outcomes in older adults with vertigo, dizziness and balance disorders as well as osteoarthritis in primary care. Relevant outcome measures are quality of life, mobility and social participation.

Further research interests include the health impact of mega sport events, and health-related aspects of occupational health management.
