In May 2023, she obtained her PhD at the Department of Pathology at Maastricht University Medical Center (MUMC)+ under supervision of Prof. Dr. Speel, Prof. Dr. Dingemans and Dr. Derks. Her PhD project was focused on pulmonary carcinoids, in particular the identification of prognostic markers for pulmonary carcinoids.
