An “on-hands” radiation physicist, always trying to explain “why”, but at the same time able to record and interpret data quickly, so as to produce well-structured and solid solutions. Attention to the minute detail, (the difference between success and failure) is another strong point. The University of Hull (UK) gave a strong affinity for a “hands-on” experience for physics, as besides the classic modules, emphasis was given in Cryogenics, Lasers & Optics, Quantum & Semiconductor Physics, combined with elements of Anatomy & Physiology. These foundations led to a solid Radiotherapy and Medical Imaging Physicist, an excellent team player, at the same time having a high efficiency to find effective answers to various problems. Being a physicist “in nature”, also gives flexibility and readiness to seek other solutions when the situation requires so. Another aspect is the Designer/Conception part. After extensive training, the “physics part” is complemented by extensive knowledge in all aspects of design engineering (from conception to manufacturing design) as well as reverse engineering using CAD software (CATIA V5, Solidworks, AutoCAD), Finite Element Analysis (Patran-Nastran) for Material Resistance, programming software (Matlab/Simulink), as well as Functional Dimensioning & Tolerancing and ISO knowledge. Major projects include the design of parts (fuel tank, Mast-rotor chassis attachment, landing gear) for SAGITA’s SHERPA® helicopter.


Past Experience

  • Aeronautical Products Design & Conception Avenue de l’Indépendance 37, B-4020 Wandre, Belgium
    December 2012 --- January 2014

    Conception & Design of parts for the SHERPA© helicopter (fuel tank– Mast-Rotor chassis attachment–Landing gear)

    Analysis- creation of plans in 2D / FE Analysis. Software used CATIA V5, Patran-Nastran

  • RX Physicist BAT. B35, Avenue de l'Hôpital 13, Sart Tilman, B-4000 Liège 1, Belgium
    November 2005 --- September 2008

    Quality-Control for radiation protection (personnel and patients) of X-ray machines and supporting infrastructure (dark room, X-ray machine developer), Mechanical control (irradiation parameters) and Acceptance Control of new radiological equipment. Equipment from all major manufacturers was tested (Siemens, Varian, Electa/Philips, GE) from the most complicated scanner to the simplest dental panoramic. The acceptance control was the most exhaustive (all mechanical parameters and the accompanying software needed to be tested) and the University Centre for Nuclear Control was participating by measuring radiation levels around the operating room.
