Jeroen is a methodologist working at the intersection of evidence synthesis, biostatistics, and health economics.

His current research interests are network meta-analysis and simulation modeling to understand the value of health care interventions, in particular related to oncology and precision medicine. Jeroen has performed applied and methods research in his areas of expertise. Notable contributions are the development of synthesis methods to overcome the typical challenges in cost-effectiveness evaluations characterized by gaps in the evidence base and complex evidence structures. He is a co-author of a textbook on network meta-analysis for decision-making.
