Who is Karen

I am an ambitious and passioned clinical researcher. As a PhD, I have learned to take responsibility for moving projects forward. I have transferred my leadership, communication and writing skills as well as critical thinking in my current role as a Clinical Research Manager. I am determined to make a difference by guiding medical device companies with my profound understanding of the clinical research needs to comply with the elevated clinical requirements. Being part of a motivated and dedicated team of Clinical Research Professionals, working towards essential clinical evidence generation, is something I am very proud of.



Expertise and background

After finishing my master’s in biomedical sciences in Belgium, I started my career in research in The Netherlands and obtained my PhD degree at the Cardiovascular Research Institute in Maastricht. I further excelled my expertise as a postdoctoral researcher in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Technology in Eindhoven.

Eager to achieve a greater impact on people’s lives and packed with broad experience in project organization and management, I joined Archer Research in 2016 where I found my true passion for clinical research.

Currently, I am the Clinical Research Manager at Archer Research overseeing all aspects of the clinical trials and providing comprehensive regulatory support for the medical device industry.




I like sharing knowledge in an interactive way and connecting with like-minded people. It promotes professional and personal growth, and encourages a collaborative mindset.
