About Me

I am an electrical engineer, specialized in the fields of signal processing and telecommunication. I'm also a violinist, bagpipe player and adventurer.
Currently, I am working as Quality Assurance engineer in the IP Routing R&D department at Alcatel-Lucent, where I validate novel software features used in the successful 7x50 Service Routing OS, used to route 1/3rd of the worldwide Internet traffic.
I graduated as Master of Science (M. Sc.) in Electrical Engineering, Multimedia & Signal Processing from the Catholic University of Leuven (KU Leuven), Belgium.
As a person, I'm highly interested in technology, both for its potential and its challenges. The present and ever faster evolution of scientific research and its applications make this an exciting world to work in. I'm also passionate about playing music, performing, traveling and generally living life.
