Hi there! I am a scientific collaborator at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences. I started with a bachelor’s degree in Geography at the University of Namur, then a master’s degree in Marine and Lacustrine Science and Management at the universities of Ghent, Antwerp and the VUB. My master thesis focused on studying trace metal concentrations in the sediments of the Bransfield Strait in Antarctica.
As far as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by this continent (I even used to give classes about Antarctica to my friends in the primary school playground). So being able to go there for my master’s degree was by far the most incredible experience of my life. Even though I am now working on sediments in the North Sea, I have kept my attraction for the polar seas intact and joined APECS to be able to pass on and share this passion!
