Jeroen studied at London, Amsterdam, and Oxford, and holds or has held (visiting) teaching and/or research positions at some of the top institutions including King’s College London, Imperial College London, University of Oxford, MIT and Harvard. He is co-founder of the RegTech platform RegMetrics ( which guides users through the European regulations for medical devices.

Throughout his tenure at Oxford, Jeroen has authored numerous publications, shedding light on the intricate challenges and opportunities within the field of medical device design, validation, and regulatory compliance. His multidisciplinary approach merges engineering principles with medical knowledge, contributing to the creation of cutting-edge solutions that address under-served healthcare needs.

Jeroens’ research focuses on developing innovative technologies for healthcare and the processes needed to do so. He is an Official Fellow of Reuben College and the Director of the Oxford HealthTech Labs. His research interest is in developing new preventative and assistive technologies that allows for more natural interactions. He has experience in developing laboratory prototypes and taking them through clinical validation to make a real-world impact. His work focuses on the development, design and application of novel healthcare technologies.

Active projects consist of creating wearables sensors for physical activity monitoring in extreme conditions, researching new solutions for limb-deficient patients, virtual prototyping and regulatory navigation for medical devices. His research vision is to prevent more people from becoming patients by creating innovative solutions.
