His own research line focuses on digital health platforms. Besides that, he has managed the program of health data science within the Eindhoven Artificial Intelligence Systems Institute (EAISI) from 2017 to 2023. Since 2023, he is serving as the scientific director of the Dutch EngD program on Clinical Informatics.

His research on digital health platforms covers engineering topics like workflow management and privacy-by-design, typically with the aim to promote long-term engagement.
