Three years ago I got my degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Directly after graduating I started a PhD at the University of Namur with Professor Thierry Arnould. The project was a continuation of the subject of my master thesis. Unfortunately, after a year I decided to stop for different personal reasons. Then I worked two months as a technician in a psychiatric hospital, which allowed me to familiarize myself with the manual labor and the basics of working with electricity. Thereafter, I became employed as a laboratory technician at Firmenich, a company producing flavors. My job was to ensure the quality control of finished products in collaboration with the team. Eventually I was the victim of an accident that immobilized me for 6 months, now that I'm recovered I'm looking for a new challenge.
