i am a very motivated and enthusiastic person, i like to set goals in my life and do what is in my power to reach these; this is who i am as a person and as an Employee. i was trained as Molecular Biologist and i obtained my phd in Biochemistry and Biotechnology. i am driven by curiosity and adrenaline to improve my knowledge and i like to work together with colleagues towards the shared goal of improving human Health.


Past Experience

  • R&D Scientist

    February 2017 --- May 2017

  • PhD project: New insight into the ubiquitin-mediated regulation of TNFR2 signaling

    October 2011 --- December 2016
    my phd consisted in deciphering the signaling pathway of tnfr2. tnfr2 is a receptor for tnf, an important player of the inflammatory process and it is involved in pathologies as multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease. promoter: prof. dr. rudi beyaert funding: fwo (2012-2016) competences: scientific competences: recombinant Protein Expression and Purification in Bacteria, plasmid transformation and Purification, Signal Transduction and protein Analysis (SDS-PAGE, Western Blotting, Immunoprecipitation and pull down) ubiquitin Analysis (Immunoprecipitation of ubiquitinated and ubiquitin binding Proteins, deubiquitinases Assays) Flow Cytometry Immunohistochemistry and immunocitochemistry PCR and qPCR crispr/cas9 cloning Cell Culture (plasmid and sirna Transfection) In Vivo work: mouse: (handling, injections, breeding, t cells isolation, cortical neurons isolation, brain isolation, induction of multiple sclerosis model) c. elegans: (fret Analysis of neuronal aggregates) project menagment competences: managing of multiple Research projects, setting up international collaborations, managing Laboratory technicians and bachelor/master students' Research projects Scientific writing (reports and Literature Reviews) team player poster and oral Presentations on international meetings conferences: the embo meeting, 21-24 september 2013, amsterdam, the netherlands iuap meeting, 29-30 january 2013, gent, belgium vib seminar 2013-2016, blankenberge, belgium 15th international tumor necrosis factor conference, 20-23 may, gent, belgium iuap meeting, 6 february 2015, leuven, belgium poster Presentations: vib seminar 2015, 30 march-1 april 2015, blankenberge, belgium 15th international tumor necrosis factor conference, 20-23 may, ghent, belgium iuap meeting, 6 february 2015, leuven, belgium oral Presentations: predoc symposium irc, vib gent , belgium (2015) practical course on ubiquitin and ubiquitin related Proteins cost proteostasis. frankfurt (5-9 october 2015)

  • Master Thesis Project: Characterization of αvβ3-nanobodies, new tools for cancer therapy

    February 2010 --- February 2011
    my master thesis was performed in the context of an erasmus program. the project aimed to characterize nanobodies directed to the integrin αvβ3. this integrin is particularly expressed on newly formed tumor vessels, i therfore investigated the potential approach of the αvβ3-nanobodies in Cancer therapy. promoter: prof. dr. claude libert scientific competences: expression and Purification of nanobodies cloning of bivalent nanobodies Protein Assays: SDS-PAGE, Western Blotting ELISA setting up of an assay to investigate αvβ3-nanobodies functionality immunoistochemistry flow citometry Cell Culture (isolation and culturing of endothelial cells from humbelical cord)

  • Bachelor Thesis: "Immunoistochemical characterization of mast cells in a mouse model of neurophaty"​

    October 2008 --- December 2008
    my 3 months bachelor's project focused on the investigation of a drug as potential therapeutic against neurophatic pain. in this view, i used an immoistochemical approach to analyse the effect of the drug on degranulation of mast cells, upon induction of a neurophatic shock. promoter: prof. dr. anita colombo scientific competences: immunoistochemistry
