Summary

Being a bioscience engineer I have experienced a very broad education and have a general interest in a wide variety of jobs. My main interests are in the field of the environment as well as improving the people’s general health. I majored in Human Health, while my minor was Genetics. This is a strong combination regarding research and technology around health problems. During my master thesis, I assembled and processed a lot of data since I observed a volleyball team during one season, which I really enjoyed. I like working on projects and also applied to a course 'Project Manager'. As a recently graduated bioscience engineer, I'm looking forward to new challenges and opportunities.

Experiences

Past Experience

  • Master Thesis Leuven, Belgium
    February 2016 --- May 2017

    Context of the company:
    BioRICS is a company aiming to improve the wellness, condition and mental state of individuals in order to enhance the individual’s performance. This company executes stress monitoring at work, stress monitoring in race driving, sleepiness monitoring and physical monitoring in sports.

    Context of the project:
    For my master thesis I used the BioRICS stress monitors to perform stress measurements on elite volleyball players.

    Realizations / Activities:
    I monitored 4 players during one season and investigated the correlation between pregame stress levels and in game performance levels. I designed the experiment and had it approved by the ethical commission. I met with coaches, scouts and players in search for the best possible approach regarding real-time stress measurements and selected the most useful subjects for this project.

    Results: 
    During this project I learned a lot. Working independently, meeting deadlines, communication with my supervisor, my subjects and the coach of the volleyball team. I also designed an experiment and improved my skills regarding data processing with Matlab and Microsoft Excel and enhanced my scientific writing capacities in English.

  • Master student - Project Biosystems Leuven, Belgium
    February 2015 --- June 2015

    Context of the company:
    The department of biosystems is the department in which I attended and graduated the major Human Health Engineering.

    Context of the project:
    In our first year of the master’s degree program, we had to work on a project alongside 11 fellow students. Given the major Human Health, our project aimed at inventing a wearable device improving the user’s general health.

    Realizations / Activities:
    We invented/designed a watch that measures the activity and heart rate of the user and in this way also the stress levels. The user receives some tips to release stress when stress levels are too high. The watch could also be used as a general sports watch, measuring heart rate, distance, velocity, …

    Results:
    During this project I learned to work in teams (4 teams of 3 persons) and the importance of meetings to distribute the workload proportionally and to keep an overview of the progress of every team. I also learned how to make a business plan and presenting the results with the aid of Prezi.
