In June 2014, during the final year of medical school in Mexico, I came to the Netherlands as an exchange student. In that period, I got acquainted with the Movement Disorders Expert Centre from the UMCG. I finished my medical degree in March 2015 and since October of the same year I am following a PhD program in this hospital (UMCG). I am interested in the advanced treatment options for patients with movement disorders, mostly related to deep brain stimulation (DBS). At present, I am working on my research project on the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery. On this project, we look for methods to make the therapy with DBS smarter and more efficient.
