Although I am scientifically trained, I have a broad interest field and I am very motivated and interested to learn about all the aspects of the pharmaceutical industry.

During my PhD training at the Centre of Medical Genetics in Antwerp, I successfully designed and applied various protocols, for the genetic and molecular biology analysis of candidate genes in the light of human obesity. In addition, I performed data listing, processing and analysis personally, using Excell, PLINK and SPSS. As a general task in the Centre of Medical Genetics during my PhD education, I was responsible for researching, filing and updating the Material Safety and Data Sheets of all the products in the lab.

I consider myself a very punctual and orderly (but still creative) person, with a natural talent for planning and organization which I apply in both my personal and professional life. Furthermore I am capable of working and solving problems independently.

I have always looked for new challenges and ways to develop myself independently and broaden my horizon. After 5 years of research in an academic environment, I decided to travel for several months, refresh my language skills and think about the direction in my professional life. I came back refreshed, eager to learn and motivated to start a new experience.
