Work I have done

Biotech and bioinformatics

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.

Gamification and neuromarketing

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

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.

Determine what predicts employee turnover via algorithms.

Using machine learning to classify biological data.

Creative stuff

I write about a variety of tech related topics.

This is an article I wrote for Datanews about how consumer data can be used to manipulate:

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

I made a mockumentary about a Belgian (played by me) on a quest to become the world champion of Birdwatching, which was filmed in New Jersey! (yes it is exactly as silly as it sounds).

A second unbiased opinion

"Steven is a great entrepreneurial thinker with fresh ideas and a strong team spirit. I can sincerely recommend him when you are interested in leveraging technology and/or gamification in your practice. "

Jan Van Looy
Professor at Ghent University, gamification expert

"Young, engaged and enthusiastic... Add a good amount of creativity to this, and you have Steven. Exceptional guy for exceptional projects. The vzw Stop Darmkanker had the privilege to get to know Steven and to work together. It surely payed off! Thanks Steven!"
