Editor in Chief
Almere Stad Area, Netherlands
I have done research into tropical and exotic diseases all my life . After obtaining my PhD in molecular microbiology from Amsterdam University I have worked at the Max planck Institut in Berlin for almost 7 years. I have spent several years in Africa doing research on malaria, sleeping sickness and meningococcal epidemics. Since 2012 I am advocating open access and open science and joined Open Knowledge . Shortly afterwards I became a member of the DOAJ advisory board and since 2014 I am Editor in Chief at DOAJ. From jan 2018 I am responsable for the ambassador programme and global outreach activities of the DOAJ. My current research interests are the evaluation of systems for the assessment of the quality of scholarly journals and articles, and research in the area of soil microbiology in relation to soil health and human health (microbiome research).
