What have I done?

Biotech and bioinformatics

Dewpal
I co-invented Dewpal together with Ghent University. It's a way to condensate water faster via biomimicry and synthetic biology, with the goal of reducing water scarcity.



Biomarker analysis
Machine learning and image processing on fluorescent data.

Marketing and gamification

Neuromarketing
I helped the non-profit Stop Darmkanker increase their donations via small changes on their website.

Data-driven marketing
Predicting which customers might drop out via smart machine learning models has saved one of my clients a lot of time and money.

Gamification
I advised a pharma company how a game system can increase medication adherence.

Data science

Energy trading
I predicted the behaviour of energy trading prices via different machine learning models.

HR
Determine what predicts employee turnover via algorithms.

Biotech
Using machine learning to classify biological data.

Writing

I write about a variety of tech related topics.

Science communication
I love to translate science into fun explanations, along with visuals to make it even clearer.
