The team

The scientific background of Liesbeth and Stephan, and the good cooperation and interaction with them, has led to a beautiful outcome of this extensive and complex project; the Seven Countries Study. Daan Kromhout, Wageningen University

I have worked closely with Liesbeth and Stephan. They listened very carefully to our wishes, translated them into designs and texts that were understandable and visibly highly attractive. Their greatest asset is their ability to communicate clearly and constantly address the various professional voices involved by translating between the different audiences.

I make science sexy and want to help researchers create more impact with their work. That’s why I taught myself design and web development during my research and PhD in nutrition science at Harvard School of Public Health and VU University.

Since founding The Online Scientist in 2012, I’ve created over 150 websites and dozens of infographics, animated video and e-learning courses for researchers all over the world. My goal is to make their research output more user-friendly and intuitive with interactive designs that puts a smile on your face.

I started in science communication right after graduating as a biologist, and I now commit myself to improving the discipline of science communication or ‘scicomm’ even further. Not only by working with scientists and giving workshops, but also as co-chairman of the Dutch science communication association SciCom NL. One of my goals is to connect the practice of scicomm to the academic study of it.

My vision is that both science and society can benefit from clear science communication when it’s done the right way.
