I am an enthusiastic biologist looking for a new challenge.
During my studies in biology at the University of Leuven my curiosity was aroused on the possibilities that knowledge and creativity have to offer when it comes to solving scientific problems. Therefore I have mainly chosen my master’s courses related to animal physiology and molecular biology to build the widest possible knowledge for a career in scientific research.
