Eline obtained her medical degree at the University of Utrecht. During her studies she always had special interest in neurology, so she spent most of her open courses and research projects on this subject. After graduating she worked as a medical doctor in the neurology ward in the Diakonessenhuis in Utrecht for over a year.
In April 2015 she started her PhD project under the supervision of Jacoba Greving and Ale Algra on the subject of carotid artery stenosis. She will look at the prediction of outcome after carotid intervention in patients with symptomatic carotid artery stenosis.
