Henriëtte Brouwer-Middelesch, MSc

"At Royal GD, I get the opportunity to develop products based on routinely collected data that support animal health at sector level but also at individual farm level. In this way, I really like to contribute to a high level of farm animal health in the Netherlands." Henriëtte Brouwer-Middelsch


  Henriëtte Brouwer studied Animal Sciences at Wageningen University, the Netherlands with a specialisation in Quantitative Veterinary Epidemiology. She graduated in 2003 and started working as a veterinary epidemiologist at Royal GD. She participates in research projects providing epidemiological input and conducting epidemiological analyses. She is involved in the development of data-driven products supporting surveillance of animal health in the Netherlands.
