Please meet our colleague Johan van Soest, postdoctoral researcher and clinical Data Scientist, who joined IDS this December. Johan recently obtained his PhD at Maastricht University (Department of Radiotherapy / Maastro Clinic) on centralized and distributed learning of prognostic or predictive models in radiation oncology, especially in the field of rectal cancer. His research focus is on knowledge presentation, methods for validation of existing models and translating these models into clinical practice in both a central and decentral database. In addition, he has a Master’s degree in Medical Informatics.
Within both IDS and the Maastro Clinic, his focus is on distributed learning and the setting up and organizing of the infrastructure for the Personal Health
Train, aiming to connect distributed health data and create value by increasing the use of existing health data for citizens, healthcare, and scientific research. In his spare time, Johan also enjoys cycling and playing trumpet. His knowledge continues to be a very valuable addition to the IDS team!
