Research Interests

I am a master student from the University of Twente in the Netherlands. I started my bachelor’s degree in Technical Medicine in 2009. This program provides the opportunity to combine medicine with physics and engineering, focusing on the application of complex technologies in today’s health care.

After finishing my bachelor’s degree in 2013, I continued in the successive 3-year master, narrowing my field of interest towards medical imaging. During this period, I gained more interest for Health Technology Assessment (HTA) and clinical decision making. I therefore decided to elaborate my experience with the 1-year master program of Health Sciences, from which I graduated in 2015 with a research thesis titled “Assessment of the Added Value and Uncertainty of Implementation of FDG-PET/CT and MRI-DWI in Monitoring Treatment Response of Stage III Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer”.

After graduation, I continued with the rotating clinical and research internships in the final 2 years of Technical Medicine. I am currently working on my final research thesis for graduation. In this research I focus on the application of radiomics feature extraction in cardiology, where we aim to find diagnostic and prognostic predictors for heart failure patients.
My interests are in clinical decision making plus the use of big data in these decisions and the evaluation of new technologies in health care, combining both effectivity and efficiency in the analysis.
