I started studying Technical Medicine at the University of Twente in 2012 and finished my masterā€™s degree in 2020, in the track ā€œMedical Sensing and Stimulationā€. During my graduation project at the department of Neurology at Rijnstate Hospital, I evaluated the additional value of structural MRI measures, in addition to the EEG, to predict neurological outcome of comatose patients after cardiac arrest. After receiving my masterā€™s degree Technical Medicine, I started working as a PhD student in the Clinical Neurophysiology department and Rijnstate Hospital.
