Dr. Anique Grob is an assistant professor in the Multi-Modality Medical Imaging (M3i) group at the University of Twente, Enschede the Netherlands since 2017. She obtained her Ph.D. in medicine in 2016 from the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands. Her main research interest is in urogynaecological imaging. She is a co-promotor of three PhD students and supervises every year five to ten students that are working on their bachelor and master thesis in various domains within urogynecology. She was the lead coordinator in the Gynius (TTW-OTP 2017) application.

She works (as a Technical Physician) in outpatient clinical care at the gynecology department of ZGT since July 2020.
