Personal details


After completing a Bachelor in Human Movement Sciences and a Premaster in Biomedical Sciences, I obtained my Master's degree in Oncology at the VU University in Amsterdam. During this Master, I performed internships at the VUmc/CCA in the department of oncogenetics, as well as at the NYU Medical Center (New York City) in the group of Dr. Michele Pagano.

My PhD thesis in the Akkari lab will focus on elucidating the dynamic roles of innate immune cells in brain tumor resistance and recurrence post-therapy.
