Michelle Melis has always been driven by her ambition to improve the quality of life of others. Therefore, she volunteered in several projects for people with disabilities. As a clinical psychologist, she developed a special interest in disorders of the brain. This triggered her to do research about the impact of mindfulness on cancer-related cognitive impairment at KU Leuven. This way, she hopes to improve the quality of life of many patients.​
