Janine van Til is a health scientist by training. Janine started her work in preference research with her PhD project called “Integrating Preferences into decision making”, which was focused on including values in decision making in the treatment of ankle-foot impairments in stroke patients. Janine is currently working as an assistant professor in the department of Health Technology and Services Management at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. Her research is focused on using preference methods, mainly discrete choice experiments, best-worst scaling and multi-criteria decision analysis to include the stakeholder perspective in health care decisions in the clinical, management and societal context. She has more than 15 years of experience in the design and analysis of stated preference surveys, mainly in the field of neurology, oncology and cardiology. Janine acted as co-promotor of two PhD students in the field of preference research, and is involved in the training of five other PhD students. Over the last five years she has successfully written multiple grant proposals, project managed national and international projects and worked as a consulting researcher in international projects. She is also the main lecturer of the course “Patient Preference Modelling” in the master Health Sciences at the University of Twente. In her non-research time, Janine likes to read books on the psychology of decision making and fantasy novels, imagines herself doing lots of sports and taking holidays, and is the proud mother of two very sassy boys.
