I’m a neuroscientist, trying to make sense of our brain. I like the brain for all its complexity, and try to understand more of it by using graph theory. This theory-governed but still data-driven approach allows for investigation of how the brain works on multiple scales and with several imaging modalities. I’m particularly interested in using these methods to improve diagnosis and treatment in neuro-oncology and epilepsy, and always try to relate the abstract topology of the brain network back to behavior. In this video I explain my research in 180s (in Dutch).

Most of the time, you can find me at the department of Anatomy and Neurosciences of the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam (The Netherlands), where I hold an assistant professor faculty position. I also spend quite some time at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Boston (MA, USA) as a visiting scholar.
