In 2013, I completed my physiotherapy degree at Zuyd University of Applied Sciences. During the final year of my bachelor, I started working as a student assistant within the research centre "Autonomy and Participation" of Zuyd. I also undertook a research placement at the University of Exeter. I started to realize that I wanted to learn more about research, especially when it comes to (implicit) motor learning and rehabilitation. I felt very comfortable in Exeter and I had the feeling that I could deepen my knowledge in this area over here. Therefore, I decided to start my Masters degree (Sports and Health Sciences) at the University of Exeter, where I am currently based. Furthermore, I am volunteering in the Action After Stroke group. This is a student led organisation where individuals who have had a stroke (or other neurological disorders) can exercise in a gym.
Working within the Facilitation Movement Implicity project increased my enthusiasm for motor learning in rehabilitation. I am hoping to explore and continue to do research in this area.
