Anne was born on December 2nd, 1992 and graduated her high school in 2013. She started studying Life, Science and Technology in 2013 at the University of Groningen and quickly realized her passion for medical technologies and in particular for different imaging modalities. She then chose the track Biomedical Engineering and after completing her Bachelor’s degree, she decided to continue her studies in her hometown of Enschede at the University of Twente. There she started the track Imaging and Diagnostics of the corresponding Master program Biomedical Engineering. After finishing her Master courses, she started her Master’s thesis at the Magnetic Detection and Imaging group.
During the Bachelor’s thesis Anne developed a standard procedure to detect and quantify growth of solid lung nodules in three dimensions using Computer Tomography at the University Medical Center Groningen. She subsequently did her internship at the Martini Hospital in Groningen, where she designed a procedure to develop training programs for hazardous medical technologies and realized the first steps in an implementation for electrosurgery. Currently, she is working on her Master’s thesis at the Magnetic Detection & Imaging Group. Her research focuses on the development of a protocol to accurately detect displacement of stent grafts in a phantom model of the abdominal aorta, to determine if the posture of a patient in a MRI scanner influences the fixation of stent grafts.
