In 2011, Tristan graduated from Universiteit Utrecht, having completed the master's programme Theoretical Physics at the Instituut Theoretische Fysica in Utrecht. His master thesis was conducted in the field of ultracold quantum gases. In January 2012, Tristan started his PhD on MRI-guided radiotherapy for breast cancer patients at the Radiotherapy Department of UMC Utrecht, focusing on the hybrid MRI/linear accelerator. His work includes studying magnetic-field-induced effects on the skin dose, optimizing MRI for visualization of the lymph nodes in regional radiotherapy, and analyzing intra-fraction motion using MRI.
