About


Do Tromp, PhD.


Do was born and raised in the Netherlands, where she received her college education at Utrecht University in the fields of science & innovation management, psychology and neuroscience. She then continued her education in the United States and received her PhD in neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her interests are focused on understanding how individual factors conspire to influence health outcomes. As such her PhD research was focussed on how genetic and environmental factors influence white matter microstructure in the brain, and alter the likelihood to develop anxiety disorders. She is particularly interested in using state of the art technology to answer these questions and sharing this knowledge through decentralized tools (see also diffusion-imaging.com; a website providing explanations and tutorials on diffusion tensor imaging analyses, with over half a million views). She is generally interested in the intersection between tech and health, and is starting to develop novel tools to investigate, forecast and instigate healthy mental and physical life outcomes.
