Current Experience

  • Educational Coach Brussels, Belgium
    Since March 2017

    I develop student to become independent learners and critical thinkers. Together, we establish a schedule and determine goals to achieve. We also tackle issues that they have in order to boost their learning skills, by putting in place different strategies tailored for a specific type of information and to them.

Past Experience

  • Research fellow Leuven, Belgium
    July 2013 --- December 2016

    I come up with an innovative idea for a research project. To determine the impact of my project, I consulted a doctor to know if the proposed project would help diagnostic assays.
    I designed other projects that were executed either alone or in collaboration with a college.
    I also participated in a medium-size team project, gathering the whole laboratory.
    I designed behavioural and electrophysiological experiments in order to learn more about memory procedures. I learned the links between brain signatures and behavioural readouts and behaviour in general. I collected and analysed behavioural, imaging and electrophysiology data using excel, imageJ and python (respectively). Checked the significance with statistical tests, when applicable, and interpret from the data in order to conclude upon them.
    I performed surgeries in rats (injections and implantations).
    I was also managing rat and materials stock, and for 2 years organized lab meetings.
    Through this work experience, I also contacted different specialists to guide me for the correct validity tests (in statistics).

  • Internship Leuven, Belgium
    April 2013 --- June 2013

    Participated in a PhD student project within a team of 3 persons.
    I established an histological protocol and imaging protocol, as well as a behavioural protocol.
    I collected behavioural and imaging data, that I analysed and interpreted.
    I have a written and oral reports.
    Contributed with ideas to improve behavioural protocols.

  • Internship Brussels, Belgium
