Keynote presentation 1
Dr Evy Dhondt
Quantitative sensory testing from a research perspective
Evy Dhondt (born on January 4, 1991) graduated in 2014 as a Master of Science in Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy – Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy with Musculoskeletal Afflictions – at Ghent University. In October 2014 she started working as a PhD researcher at Ghent University within the Spine, Head and Pain Research Unit Ghent. Evy (co-)authored 8 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and presented her research at several national and international conferences. Next to her scientific work, Evy taught practical physiotherapy classes at the department of Rehabilitation Sciences. After obtaining her PhD in Health Sciences
in 2021 she remained affiliated with Ghent University as a voluntary post-doctoral researcher. In October 2021 she started working as the national database manager/coordinator of the Belgian Cerebral Palsy Register (BeCPR vzw/asbl). Evy is also a member of the international research group Pain in Motion.
