University of Hasselt, Belgium
During her neurology residency in Bucharest Romania (where she was born), her interest in MRI was sparkled by the ISMRM MRI Summer School. Afterwards she spent one year at the MS Center Amsterdam, starting her work on brain atrophy in Multiple Sclerosis. After the residency and one year at the Lille University Hospital, Veronica returned to Amsterdam for a PhD in MRI in Multiple Sclerosis with Prof. Frederik Barkhof, combining MRI with pathological and clinical data, including several MAGNIMS projects. Since 2014 she is working in Belgium, first as a Medical Expert for medical software and since 2015 as a neurologist specialized in Multiple Sclerosis at the Rehabilitation and MS Center in Pelt and Hasselt University.
