I studied chemistry at the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium, obtaining my master in 2000 and my PhD in 2004. During 2004-2007 I worked as a postdoc at the KU Leuven and at imec. Research interest at the time was electronic properties of carbon nanotubes, nanocones and nanocages.
Since 2007, I work as a scientist at the Belgian Institute of Space Aeronomy.
First as member of the tropospheric modelling group, where the focus was on atmospheric chemistry and gas-particle partitioning modeling.
Since 2015, I work at the 'synergistic exploitation of atmospheric data', on quality assessment of satellite measurements of atmospheric species (e.g., nitrogen dioxide, formaldehyde).
