About Liesbeth Smit, MSc

Science can be sexy, and it’s my passion to show that any topic can be interesting when it’s presented well.

After an academic career as a nutrition scientist at Harvard School of Public Health and VU University, I now help scientists to present their research better. Whether it’s for outreach or education, I make science attractive by developing websites, e-learning, presentations and infographics with my company, The Online Scientist.

My goal is to make complex information accessible to the public. I leave the actual research to the PhD students and professors. Instead of the usual PubMed articles for users to wade through, I’ll create a clear website, infographic or e-learning course where people can immediately see what the research is about and why it is important.

Through my experience with improvisation and storytelling you can put me on any stage for a substantive story about food science, or an inspiring workshop on how to communicate science better.

Nutrition scientist

I trained as a nutrition scientist and did nutritional research for many years. I now clearly explain food science in books, columns, blogs, magazines and on television.

      Liesbeth makes everything more beautiful and gives your site a professional look. Unbelievable how quickly she understands what you have in your head and can turn it in to a design. In addition, she works hard and fast.

      Wy work with me?

      Important scientific research deserves a beautiful stage. I like to put enthusiastic entrepreneurs who make the world a better place in the spotlight.

      I think it’s a shame if the real experts are not found and are left with boring websites from the 90’s or ugly presentations packed with bullet points.

      Because of my scientific background, I make sure that your content is always the most impotant thing. You can trust that with my 10 years of experience in web design I know what is needed for a user-friendly website. And did you know that I am also an author? Now I also help others with clear texts that inspire.

      I always provide content, text, design and technology with a big smile!

      She is critical in a pleasant and very accessible way and she is open to new ideas. Liesbeth is passionate about her profession and her enthusiasm is infectious.
