Since October 2020, I have been part of Heidi's lab as a PhD-student at Maastricht University. I have a high interest in brainstem imaging, more specifically the locus coeruleus, one of the initial sites of neuropathological changes in Alzheimer's disease. In collaboration with the University of Liege, my research aims to investigate the impact of two non-invasive stimulation techniques on locus coeruleus function during memory or attentional processes, and linking these to pupil variation measures. The stimulation methods that I am focusing on are transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation and exposure to blue-enriched light. Beside my scientific interests, I love spending time outdoor, skiing or trekking in the mountains and rock climbing. Tap dancing and playing the piano are also two of my favourite hobbies to relax.
