MSc: 1996, University of Amsterdam, Cum Laude
Research Interest: Intercultural communication in the context of health.
Research: My research focuses on intercultural health communication, in particular on cultural differences in patients’ information and participation preferences and communicative behavior, interpreter-mediated communication processes, patient-provider interaction, and intervention evaluations. Furthermore, I am also interested in research on using new media technologies in health communication, such as Entertainment-Education and e-health.
