Video: Talking about books - Carin Dansen

The University Library also serves as the Academic Library of azM/MUMC+. Hence, for a new Talking about books video we went to the hospital to visit Carin Dansen, a midwifery nurse and nursing scientist. 

Carin talks about Nursing research: generating and assessing evidence for nursing practice, a book by  Denise F. Polit and Cheryl Tatano Bec. She highlights that the book is especially interesting to learn more about how to start nursing, to collect (evidence) data and to conduct the research. Carin also gives a sneak peek into her working area, where new life often starts.


UMagazine offers insight into the key developments and achievements in education and research at Maastricht University. The magazine is printed three times a year.

The February edition includes a portrait of Frank Nellen, associate professor of Tax Law. Alongside his work for the university and the accountancy firm Baker Tilly, he is also a novelist. His second novel, The invisibles, received high praise in the major Dutch newspapers—a well-earned reward for four years of hard work. 

How can 3D models be preserved? This is the idea behind PURE3D, a project in which Costas Papadopoulos and Susan Schreibman are developing an infrastructure for the preservation and publication of 3D scholarship. In the future, the platform may also provide a new way of accessing cultural heritage, from the Battle of Mount Street Bridge to Limburg’s mines and the Smithsonian. 

Lee Bouwman, a vascular surgeon and endowed professor of Clinical Engineering, is bridging the gap between technology and clinical practice. Innovations range from the use of robotics in aortic stenting and knee replacement surgery to the localisation of breast tumours using magnetic seeds and iron oxide.

What will the sustainable city of the future look like? To answer this question, we shouldn’t just ask experts, says postdoctoral researcher Özlemnur Ataol. The youngest users of the urban environment—children—should get a say too. Creating cities in which they can thrive will benefit people of all ages. 

Supervised by Anne Roefs, Leo Pimpini conducted PhD research on the effects of mindset and BMI on food-related cognition and behaviour. In his dissertation, he dispels a number of prejudices about obesity.  

This time, Soul Kitchen offers a peek into the kitchen of David Baiao Barata, born and raised in Portugal. For him, every meal starts with a splash of olive oil and some garlic. And we meet alum Natalia Westermann, who became an entrepreneur following her master’s in Healthcare Policy, Innovation and Management. She now runs a sustainable vintage-clothing store in Maastricht.

Read about all this and more in the February issue of UMagazine!
