Joline Beulens is Professor of Lifestyle and Cardiometabolic Disease Epidemiology at the Department of Epidemiology & Data Science of Amsterdam UMC. She leads the group on 'Lifestyle and Chronic Disease Epidemiology'.
The main focus of her research is on aetiology and prevention of cardiometabolic diseases with a specific focus on the role of health behaviours. She uses large observational studies to quantify the association of different risk factors or exposures with the occurrence type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases or to accurately predict those with a high risk of developing those diseases. Intervention studies are used to confirm observed associations and prevent occurrence of cardiometabolic diseases. She is PI of CVON Supreme Nudge consortium investigating the role of nudging, pricing and a physical activity app on cardiometabolic risk in people with low socioeconomic position.
