About Me

I am an electrical engineer, specialized in the fields of signal processing and telecommunication. I'm also a violinist, web designer and adventurer. Currently, I am employed at the Technical University of Denmark as a PhD student. As part of the Hearing Systems group, I conduct research into the benefits of using virtual sound environments in the testing of hearing aids. This research builds on the signal processing approach to understanding and analyzing human hearing, combined with psychoacoustic methods and cognitive processing. Before this, I worked as Quality Assurance engineer in the IP Routing R&D department at Nokia, where I validated 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 and performing music, traveling and generally enjoying life!

Catholic University Leuven ( KULeuven )

Master of Science in Electrical Engineering September 2007 - June 2012
Magna Cum Laude

An intense, but highly interesting five-year education, during which advanced understanding and knowledge in domains such as signal processing, telecommunication, and computer science was acquired. Participation in extracurricular activities, such as the University Symphony Orchestra, and VTK student club.

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet ( DTU )

Erasmus Exchange - 1st year of Master in Electrical Engineering September 2010 - June 2011 ECTS Grade: A

A one-year exchange as part of the Erasmus program, to one of the most prestigious technical universities in Scandinavia. Apart from the usual curriculum, there was additional focus on Artificial Intelligence, Analog High-Frequent System Design and Computer Graphics. Participation in extracurricular activities, such as the BEST Engineering Competition, and the Polyteknisk Forening.


PhD researcher December 2017 - now

Assessing hearing device benefit using virtual sound environments
The PhD project aims to bridge the gap between laboratory-based tests and real world performance of hearing aids and their applications. It makes use of virtual sound environments to evaluate the impact of various hearing-aid signal processing strategies, with particular focus on spatial processing algorithms. The main lab used in this research is the , established at the Hearing Systems group at DTU.

  • • 3-year research and development of novel models and evaluation strategies for the validation of hearing aids in VSEs
  • • International collaboration with researchers worldwide, including NAL in Sydney, Australia
  • • Learning and dissemination opportunities in a rigorous, academic environment

Traveling the world for one year September 2016 - August 2017

Over the course of 11 months I traveled on my own through 18 countries around the globe. It was a journey of exceptional scale, and it taught me a lot about myself and the world around me. I met countless people of all ethnicities, religions and backgrounds, and my knowledge and ability with respect to social dynamics and interactions has expanded enormously. I wrote stories throughout my trip that are accessible

  • • Countless interactions with vastly different people, improved insights in general behaviors
  • • Constantly dealing with challenging, unknown environments and circumstances, in an independent way
  • • Making judgment calls/practical decisions on-the-fly, figuring out complex logistical problems

IP Quality Assurance Engineer September 2013 - August 2016

Validation and quality assurance of the 7x50 SROS (Service Router Operating System) software, used in the highly popular 7x50 service switches and routers used throughout the world, carrying 1/3rd of the global internet traffic. The core characteristics of this position include:

  • • Testing of Enhanced Subscriber Management features, as part of the ALU TPSDA framework
  • • Researching effects of highly specialized feature combinations on the routing platform behavior
  • • Scripted validation (TCL & Python) of interactions with the TCP/IP and OSI protocol suites

Private tutor Sciences, Maths & Violin

Tutor September 2008 - July 2013

Teaching a range of topics withing maths, physics, chemistry and computer science to high school and university students, for general improvement of understanding or preparation for specific trials and exams.
Pedagogic violin teaching to young children and adolescents.
