I was trained as a biophysicist at the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands, and received my MSc degree in experimental physics in 1996. I obtained my PhD degree at the Max-Planck-Institute in Munich, Germany.
I am actively pursuing valorization of techniques developed in our institute in order to help others benefit from our innovative approaches (see www.neuralnavigator.com). I founded my own company Brain Science Tools (www.brainsciencetools.com) to achieve these goals.Currently I am associate professor at the neuroimaging research group at the University Medical Center Utrecht. I head the fMRI guided TMS workgroup within the department, and am focussed on functional neuroimaging and neurostimulation methods development, neurocomputational modeling and the control of action preparation in healthy subjects and patients with several disorders.
