I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Psychology, and my Research Master's degree in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience at Maastricht University, in the Netherlands. During the last year of my Master's, I pursued a research internship at Wolfson Molecular Imaging Centre, at the University of Manchester, UK. My thesis focus was on cortical and striatal amyloid accumulation on 18F-Flutemetamol PET in healthy elderly. Currently, I am working in Prof. Nordberg's research group as a Research Assistant, where I can further develop my knowledge and experience in the fields of neuroimaging and biomarkers for neurodegenerative diseases.
Imaging of Neuroinflammation: Astrocytes in Alzheimer's disease
I am currently working with 11C-deuterium-L-deprenyl (11C-DED) data. My interest lies in obtaining greater understanding of the regional distribution of the 11C-DED binding, particularly in cognitively unimpaired individuals, individuals with mild cognitive impairment, as well as Alzheimer's disease patients. I am also planning to incorporate other biomarkers in my analyses, such as amyloid PET, FDG PET, as well as plasma markers.
