Greetings! My name is Sven and I was born in Tilburg on the 13th of March 1996. I grew up in a small village close to Eindhoven and as a little kid, I always wanted to become a professional tennis player but that dream was not meant to be. Fortunately, I started studying Technical Medicine at the University of Twente in 2014 which was a good ‘alternative’. During the clinical internships, I discovered my passion and fascination about the working of the human brain. Moreover, I believe that the current developments in the use of Artificial Intelligence offer great opportunities to improve healthcare in an efficient way. I am really excited to start my master thesis at the Clinical Neurophysiology Group, hoping to contribute in better understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.

Research interests   

My research will focus on getting insight in postictal symptoms in patients who received electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Besides studying the postictal symptoms, we will also investigate whether medication (Nimodipine and Acetaminophen) can help to reduce these symptoms.
