About me

I am the co-founder and CEO of Aristotle Technologies, leading the people, vision, and culture of the organization.

Having a loved one lost in the process of cognitive decline showed the detrimental effects it has on health-related quality of life. Seeing her and others go through their individual challenges in rehabilitation exposed the need for tailored tools to support, challenge, and engage them in increasing their cognitive performance. This aligns with my personal ambition to be a catalyst in improving quality of life by bridging the gap between theory and practice for SDG 3: Good Health and Mental Wellbeing.

To contribute towards this mission, my background in Biomedical Engineering has developed my skillset to apply engineering and biological principles to health-related societal challenges. This is strengthened with experience as product specialist, improving my ability to coordinate with and lead cross-functional teams providing research insights, technical solutions, and use-cases to internal and external stakeholders.

Additionally, my personal interest in the cognitive performance, data-driven approach, and youth development of sport teams really inspire me to see how innovation can move sports forward, competing at the human limits. The level of professionalism, leadership, and drive seen in professional sports is a standard I strive for in our organization.

I am grateful to have founded Aristotle Technologies with like-minded people. In an ever-changing society, we strive for sustainable value-creation through user-centered development. I am looking forward to provide value for you.

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.

  • UX/UI Manager & Assistant Software Developer
  • Current Study: MSc Human-Technology Interaction – TU/e

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.

  • Data Scientist & Software Developer
  • Current Study: MSc Data Science – EIT Digital Master School

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.
