In March 2015 I got my Master’s degree in Biomedical Engeneering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the field of Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering. I also studied at Leiden University where I obtained my Master’s degree in Medicine in 2008. With this background I am able to bridge the gap between technology and patient. It inspires me to combine multiple disciplines and work with experts from different professional backgrounds.
Currently, I work as PhD student at the department of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine at the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven. My PhD project is part of the Data Science Flagship, a collaboration between TU/e and Philips Research (IMPULS 2.0). The aim of the project is to improve the outcome of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) using hospital data and/or personal health devices by discriminating beforehand between responders and non-responders of CRT.
