Do grew up and went to college in the Netherlands, where she received degrees in psychology and neuroscience. She is currently a neuroscience graduate student in the United States. Her interest is focused on understanding the neural substrates that underlie normal and abnormal brain functioning, and specifically the connectivity that underlies affective processing in the brain. She uses state of the art imaging methods, like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) to examine alterations in white-matter structure in humans and non-human primates in relation to anxiety. In addition she is also interested in the intersection between tech and health, and wants to develop novel tools to investigate and forecast healthy behaviors.
