Who am I?

Hey, I’m Adjmal, a neuroscientist that turned entrepreneur, and a dancer at heart. I’m constantly exploring how we can use the latest scientific insights and turn them into products. 

In my podcast, I explore this process from many perspectives, trying to bridge the gap between science and business. All that in the hope of facilitating the process.

Quick Summary

  1. 🎓 I did my bachelors in Cognitive Science at the wonderful IKW. Afterwards I wanted to dive deeper into neuroscience and did my masters in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Donders Institute. Fascinated by how the brain is capable of learning new movements, I followed up with a PhD investigating how we form new motor memories.


  2. 🧪 + 💼 I did a PostDoc and right after that I dove into the startup world, founding my first company.


  3. 🎙️ I started the podcast in late 2019.

  4. 📝 I write articles about the things I learned and discovered along the way. Maybe something useful is in there for you too.

Random Stuff

  1. 🕺 I love dancing. I started to bboy, more commonly known as breakdance, when I was 16. I also like dancing other styles like House, Hip-Hop, Bachata, and Kizomba. Let’s see what I can add to the list over time.

  2. 🤖 Programming is fun! I enjoy creating all kinds of bots that make my life easy.

  3. 🏂 Almost any sport with a board is a lot of fun to me: snowboarding, longboarding, skim boarding, kite surfing,  wakeboarding… and the list goes on.
