i hold a master of bio-Engineer from the catholic University of louvain in belgium, with a specialization oriented towards nanotechnologies, materials and catalysis.

after my degree, i was immediately asked to help stabilize and reorganize a Health and Nutrition sme after bankruptcy and dismissal of all engineers/scientists. this placed me at the head of all technical and Engineering matters for an entire business of around 20 people.

within 6 months, the company was fully stabilized and making profit in all business units, thanks to thorough optimisation of all processes and redefinition of the whole Marketing and concept. through new contact, i now opened new activities in multiple countries, extending the brand, the concept and the revenues. this adventure gave me an extensive understanding on every possible activity carried in my company.

apart from that experience, my passion for science and technologies has led me to work on other interesting projects. these include my involvement in the coordination of a major european Nanotechnology project, but also to devote part of my free time to help develop a novel detector for alzheimer’s disease drugs.
