In 2013 I graduated with a Research MSc degree in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience (Neuropsychology track) from University of Maastricht. As a part of my MSc degree I completed an eight-month internship at the University Medical Centre in Mainz.

My research at the School of Psychology focuses on Tourette's syndrome in adolescence and young adults. Specifically, my main focus is on premonitory urges in the disorder and how the insula is involved in this type of urges. Moreover, I am looking into how the insula interacts with the rest of the brain. In order to achieve this I am using explorative research strategies to find pathophysiological differences between patients with TS and typically developing control subjects. My analysis of acquired brain imaging data includes structural and functional connectivity, and Independent Components Analysis.
