I am interested in always improving how we do things, therefore, it is important in my job to combine clinical practice, developement, research and teaching.

I want to study the protective effects of vaccines to understand how well our vaccines works against them. With this knowledge we can better prevent and hopefully also control severe contagious infections in the future.
