After finishing her master’s in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, Eva was not yet fed up with the city at the Waal river. Therefore, she stayed in Nijmegen for her PhD, researching the neurological basis of Parkinson’s tremor. That is an involuntary shaking movement of the arms and legs, which often is an early sign of Parkinson’s disease.
Among other things, Eva is interested in the effect of stress on Parkinson’s tremor and tries to obtain a comprehensive overview of different types of tremor. Her research aims at providing a better understanding of individual causes of tremor, to enable a more efficient and targeted treatment of Parkinson’s patients.
In her spare time, she likes to cook and bake and she can be found in a boulder hall from time to time.
