Renske Merton

PhD student

Renske Merton (1994) is a PhD Student at Amsterdam UMC since January 2021, contributing to the development of innovative MRI acquisition and image processing technology for the assessment of aortic biomechanics. Currently, her work focuses on combining 4D flow MRI and 3D cine balanced steady-state free precession scans.

Renske has a multifaceted background in science and data analysis. With a Bachelor’s in Mathematics and Physics from Amsterdam University College in 2016, she continued her academic journey, earning a Master’s in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics from the University of Cambridge in 2018, and later, a Master’s in Physics & Astronomy (Biophysics & Biophotonics) at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. In the professional arena, Renske previously served as a Data Analyst at Winclove Probiotics. Renske also brought her analytical skills to the corporate world as a Data Management Analyst at ING.
