About Me

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.

Current Focus

My current focus is helping clients with biostatistics and clinical trial designs across all phases. It’s crucial to get this right from the start to make sure the study design, data acquisition and analysis are all according to clinical trial standards. 

Among many things, this involves:

  • Sample size estimation
  • Development and assessment of Statistical Analysis Plans (SAPs)
  • Data management (cleaning, preparation, integrity checks)
  • Statistical Analysis & Modeling (descriptive & inferential)
  • Explain complex statistical concepts to non-statistical audiences in a clear and understandable manner.

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.
