I am a motivated PhD student currently working at the KU Leuven in the field of gastro-enterology and I am planning to finish my PhD at the end of this year. At work, people describe me as helpful, a good team-player & a good listener and I seem to absorb information quite fast. Personally I like working in teams as I appreciate the input from others and always like to hear a second oppinion.

In the summer of 2009 I worked at UZ Antwerp as a student at the cardiology unit where I was helping the caretakers with their daily tasks. These tasks involved data-entry, ordering and delivering food to the patients, helping patients and nurses whenever needed.
