I have a Ph.D. in chemistry, more specific in analytical chemistry. I have wide experience in academic R&D in multi-cultural environments, proven by the many papers written for internationally recognized scientific journals and worldwide collaborations. By doing the MBA at Vlerick Business School, I would like to change direction from pure R&D towards project and people management in the scientific and pharmaceutical industry. I have experience with project managament, together with budget and time management. I am used to work in multi-cultural environments and to motivate others. My communication and presentation skills are well-developed. I have very good interpersonal and planning skills, I am loyal, diligent and responsible, happy to work in teams but also confident enough to work independently. Finally, I am a positively-minded and very enthusiastic person, ready for a new challenge.
