Work experience

In 2010, I joined Sirris as project manager of the Offshore Wind Infrastructure (OWI) project. This project led to the foundation of the OWI Lab, a collaboration between the wind energy experts within Sirris, VUB and UGent aimed at initiating, supporting and executing R&D and innovation projects in the field of wind energy. Within this context, I’ve guided many SMEs and large enterprises in their innovation efforts.
