Summary

Active cyclist with a big passion for science. Striving for enhanced, but clean sports performance using scientifical knowledge. Master thesis finished at DoCoLab UGent, working on the optimalisation of detection methods for peptides and small doping molecules using a Q-Exactive hybrid quadrupole Orbitrap mass spectrometer. (LC-MS) Bachelor thesis case study: Steroid profiling: the influence of alcohol, pregnancy and anticonceptives on the athlete biological passport using GC-QqQ. (GC-MS) Also engaged in coaching of and working with young adolescents in their first steps in track cycling. Multiple medalist at national track championships and now passing through experience to young riders. Responsible for giving competition training as well as madison training (Trainer B). Regularly following refresher courses on items such as: - Weight training for cyclists - Core stability training - Dag van de Trainer (2-yearly seminar for trainers) - Dietary sports supplements - Seminar: An insight on gene doping Currently looking for a PhD position concerning chromatography and mass spectrometry.
