I am a professor of psychiatry at the University of Groningen and hold an adjunct position as professor of epidemiology at Columbia University, Mailman School of Public Health, New York. I work as a clinical psychiatrist at the Eating Disorder Department of PsyQ The Hague and the Transcultural Psychiatry Department of i-psy/PsyQ Utrecht. Since 2005 I am also a consultant psychiatrist at Altrecht Eating Disorders Rintveld.


I have published extensively, particularly in the fields of eating disorders and psychosis. My main research topics are the epidemiology and treatment of eating disorders. I have a special interest in transcultural psychiatry and was involved in the development of the DSM-5 as a member of the DSM-5 Eating Disorders Work Group and of the DSM-5 Impairment and Disability Study Group. I was chair of the work group compiling new practical guidelines for eating disorders (Zorgstandaard Eetstoornissen), released in November 2017. I was Past President and Membership Chairperson of the Eating Disorders Research Society and is the recipient of the Academy for Eating Disorders Leadership Award in Research (2011). Other editorial and consultative activities involve membership of the editorial board of The International Journal of Eating Disorders and the European Eating Disorders Review, section editor Eating Disorders for Current Opinion in Psychiatry, associate editor for a Dutch website for psychiatrists www.psychiatrienet.nl, as well as consultant for the World Health Organization (WHODAS 2.0).
