Maggie first graduated with MSc in Clinical Psychology from the University of Ghent, Belgium, where she worked with a clinical population in a psychiatric hospital. This experience made her aware of some of the shortcomings of the mental health system and motivated her to search for ways to overcome them. She decided to enroll in the MSc in Neuropsychology at the University of Maastricht, where she plunged into the research on the effects of illicit substances on general well-being and cognitive functioning. Visits at sites of Ayahuasca and psilocybin studies resulted in a journal publication and a deeper fascination with the field of psychedelic research and inspired her to stay engaged with the field after graduation. Since then she embarked on a new adventure developing mobile technologies to optimize research design and data collection across various psychedelics projects: including observational studies and clinical trials.
