I started studying Technical Medicine at the University of Twente in 2012 and finished my master’s degree in 2020, in the track “Medical Sensing and Stimulation”. 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 master’s degree Technical Medicine, I started working as a PhD student in the Clinical Neurophysiology department and Rijnstate Hospital.

During my PhD, I am working on the BROCA-prediction study. With this study we aim to identify predictors for long-term cognitive disturbances after cardiac arrest based on early multidisciplinary screening, EEG, and brain MRI.
