  • PSV Agreement

    January 2022 - we’ve reached a long-term agreement with PSV. We have experienced PSV’s pioneering position since day one, being part of their ‘living lab’ at the youth academy. Being closer to the end-users has helped us improve the implementation of the cognitive training tool based on their specific needs.

  • Dutch Design Week

    October 2021 - Via Innovation Space we were invited to be at the Dutch Design Week exposition - "Drivers of Change". This allowed us to validate ACT Kinise on a broader scale than with athletes. The number of positive reactions was amazing. Everyone who came "Drivers of Change" was immediately drawn to our stand and had a lot of fun using our software.

  • TU/e Contest

    June 2021 - The TU/e Contest was not only an experience to learn from, but our idea got validated by multiple companies and experts. Aristotle Technologies won both the Talent Award by TWICE Eindhoven and the Audience Award.

During recent years, I became more aware that a vast majority of technological advancements are not put to their full use in the current society. Some reasons for this are the fear of change that a lot of people experience, the lack of knowledge and awareness of the newest applications and because the existing infrastructure cannot keep up with the speed of technological innovation. Therefore, my goal is to inform people about the newest possibilities of the technology of this time and the added value these advancements can have to their daily life by making seemingly complicated technologies easy to use and understand for everyone. This is also why I decided to join Aristotle. I believe that there is still a lot of ground to cover in cognitive training and that we as Aristotle can make a difference.

I have a background in Automotive Engineering at Fontys and after completing the pre-master at the start of last year, I started the master. Due to the current global pandemic, the international semester had been cancelled. As an alternative, I knew I wanted to do something pro-active and work on a practical project instead of following more theoretical courses, and the TU/e Innovation Space project could offer just that. At Aristotle I can apply and broaden my knowledge of cognition, combined with a diverse multidisciplinary team there is a lot for me to learn! Together with Aristotle, I believe we can explore and create effective cognitive training tools and lift athletes to the next level both personally and professionally.

I have the luck to study in two of the top universities in Europe, TU/e in Eindhoven and KTH in Stockholm and also get a minor in Entrepreneurship besides the Data Science track. I would describe myself as analytical, organizing and pragmatic. I joined Aristotle to get out of my comfort zone, develop my personal skills in social and technical aspects but also implement my knowledge attained from my studies so far in a real-life problem, in realistic conditions. I believe we can really make an impact with innovative ideas and tools but also highlight the advantages of cognitive training in football or in general.
