Work experience

Between 2013 and 2015 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher affiliated with the Department of Information Technology of Ghent University (iMinds). Subsequently, I focused on industrial valorization as Research & Innovation manager on Cyber-Physical Systems at the University of Antwerp affiliated with iMinds and Flanders Make. 
Since joining Sirris in 2016, I’ve been a sounding board for numerous companies and I’ve been active in large European R&D programs, as well as in national VLAIO and Innoviris projects.


  • Ph.D. (2013) and Master (2008) in Computer Science Engineering at Ghent University.
