I was born in Leuven, Belgium. A complete science and maths adept in high school, but my interests in human behaviour won from the passion of science when I entered the university. As a BSc. in Political Sciences and Sociology, I continued a MSc. in Communication Sciences and a Teachers’ training at KU Leuven.
I took my first professional steps in the media as a researcher in a tv show about science Hoe?Zo! Afterwards, I became project coordinator at First Line Telecom, a company that upgraded the Nortel equipment from 2G to 3G mobile networks for both Mobistar and Base. I missed the ‘human aspect’, so after two years I changed job and started at KU Leuven as a recruitment officer. After 6 years focusing on study advice of 18 years old students, informing high schools, teachers, parents and policy makers, I started at the Faculty of Engineering Technology as the communication and external relations officer. I started to work on the PhD project since August 2017 at the Educational Support Services of the faculty.
I love living in my hometown Leuven, together with my partner-in-crime Thomas, a director at the national news channel and my two little, funny and curious boys Gus (° 2008) and Oskar (°2010).
