After completing secondary school in 2003 (VWO at the Guido de Brès, Amersfoort), she started her study in Medical Natural Sciences (Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam). During her master specialization she performed two research internships. Her major research internship (performed at the Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam) concerned the use of fluorescence spectroscopy in skin to determine post mortem time. During her minor internship (performed at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam) she worked on automatic particle tracking for directional motion. In 2009 she received her MSc degree and started her PhD project at the departments of Human Biology and Radiology, Maastricht University. During her PhD project she investigated the relationship between ectopic fat accumulation and cardiac and hepatic tissue function, using noninvasive Magnetic Resonance techniques. Dr. van Ewijk defended her thesis on the 1st of July 2014. Subsequently, she was appointed as postdoctoral researcher at the department of Radiology, Maastricht University. She will optimize and apply MR techniques which can be used to investigate several physiological questions.
