My core values are helping others, flexibility, loyalty, passion and expertise. I want to perform a job in which I can be autonomous, coordinate a project and coach people. I am very flexible and prepared to travel and/or work abroad. I love problem solving, working on a variety of projects and make things work by dedication and by bringing people together. I want to interact and communicate, but most of all I want others to directly benefit from my work.
PhD student with bidiplomation Diepenbeek, Belgium
Since October 2011
PhD student/Teaching assistant in bidiplomation between Hasselt University (Belgium) and University Pierre et Marie Curie Paris 6 (France)
Field: Biomedical Sciences - Neuroscience
Topic: “Mechanisms of microglial migration in the mouse embryonic central nervous system”
Technical skills: advanced fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, live tissue imaging, animal breeding, immunohistochemistry, cell culture
Tasks: I set up and coordinated my own research project in developmental neuroscience, while coordinating and actively taking part in the education of Biomedical Science students at UHasselt. During my PhD, I collaborated interdisciplinary and communicated scientific results through publishing papers and performing oral and poster presentations at international meetings. I coached master thesis projects and bachelor students in small groups for theoretical subjects as well as practical and theoretical assessments. In this job I loved the autonomy, the diversity and the opportunity to help others as well as the - sometimes difficult - challenges I faced upon problem solving.
