I work in the Dutch research institute of mental health care. We work on monitoring and improving mental health care in the Netherlands and other countries. I am involved there in two research projects.
I do athletics and play saxophone in the Amsterdam Tramharmonie Orchestra ((website hidden)). In the little free time left I do voluntarily work for a non-profit organization for supporting people with mental health problems.
I live with my boyfriend, Yassene, in Amsterdam. He works in the University Medical Center in Leiden on different aspects of "Proteomics" (and if you want to know what that means you should maybe ask him directly:) ). As he is German we speak at home English, Dutch and German.
In our free time we do mostly outside activities like running, biking, or just going for a walk in the city center. We love playing games in groups with friends and family. Although living in a city, we take each opportunity to be in the nature. We love traveling and exploring new places, so we have been to Sweden, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Poland, Australia, Canada, South Africa, and every now and then some new place in Germany. We both are vegetarian and drink lots of tea.
