About Me

During a master in Mathematics at the University of Amsterdam I became interested in the subfield of computational geometry. I graduated in 2012 with a thesis about the decomposition of completely positive matrices. Afterwards I ventured into the field of medical imaging at the Image Sciences Institute at the University Medical Centre Utrecht. There I have worked on a project to construct a model with which cardiovascular events can be fully automatically predicted using only low dose chest CT scans. In January 2014, I joined the Orthopaedic Research Laboratory as a Ph.D. student in the ERC-BioMechTools project under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Ir. Nico Verdonschot. Co-supervisors are André Sprengers and Dennis Janssen.

Research Impression

Models and simulations are very useful tools with which the effect of treatments and corrections can be evaluated before any, possibly invasive, treatment is performed on a patient. Personalisation of these models will yield more accurate simulations, thus more accurate prediction of treatment outcome. My part in the BioMechTools project is to develop methods for the generation of personalised geometry. Every patient has a unique topology, which can be inferred from imaging data such as MRI. Using this topology to generate the geometric models, we aim to improve upon the diagnostic and predictive capabilities of current musculoskeletal models and simulations.
