My research revolves around injury prevention with a special focus on fall injury. I am currently evaluation the injury reducing potential of shock absorbing flooring.
I am teaching at our MASTERS program Risk Management in society .
I started out as a nurse, working mainly in elderly care for 15 years. In 2010 I took a MASTERs in Risk Management and after that started working at the university.
My experience as a nurse have made me realise the difficulties and challenges of preventing falls and fall injury and this has become the main focus of my research.
