Simone received her MSc in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Twente in 2015. During her Master's assignment she worked on a project about the task-dependency of tsDCS. Furthermore, she investigated the influence of fatigue on the joint position sense in soccer players during her internship at the Center for Sensory-Motor Interaction in Aalborg (Denmark).
Currently, she is a PhD student and working on the AWARD project (Assessment during Walking using A Robotic Device). The aim of this project is to develop methods to assess walking impairments in stroke patients by using the LOPES and/or other robotic devices.
