Biography

Biography

 

I studied medicine at the University of Amsterdam / Academic Medical Center (2003-2012). From 2009 I combined my studies with PhD research at the department of neurology of the VU Medical Center Amsterdam, which in 2013 led to the thesis 'Lesions in the connected brain: a network perspective on brain tumors and lesional epilepsy'. I then worked as a postdoctoral physician-researcher at the VUmc Alzheimer Center, and at the Departments of Psychiatry and Intensive Care Medicine at UMC Utrecht.

From 2014 to 2019, I trained as a psychiatrist at UMC Utrecht, also working at Tergooi Ziekenhuizen, Arkin Amsterdam and at Amsterdam UMC, location VUmc. In 2016 I worked at the Melbourne Neuropsychiatry Centre in Australia (supervisors: Prof. Dr. Christos Pantelis and Dr. Andrew Zalesky) and was appointed as honorary fellow from 2017 to 2019. After my training, I worked as a hospital psychiatrist at the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis Amsterdam.

Since 2019 I work as a psychiatrist at UMC Utrecht, Affective and Psychotic Disorders Unit. I combine my clinical work with scientific research in the Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Intensive Care Medicine.

I conduct research on the emergence of psychiatric symptoms and the development of predictors of the effectiveness of psychiatric treatments. In doing so, I currently focus particularly on psychotic disorders, depression and delirium, and make extensive use of MRI brain scans and electroencephalography (EEG) recordings of brain activity. Multidisciplinary collaboration is crucial here, for example with researchers from neurology, neuroscience and artificial intelligence. The aim of this research is to better adapt treatments to the individual, so that symptoms disappear more quickly and unnecessary side effects can be avoided.
