From my early childhood, I was fascinated by plants and animals. This later transformed into a passion for science. I did my Bachelor's in Biology at the University of Leuven, Belgium, and specialised in Evolutionary Biology during my Masters in the MEME Erasmus Mundus Programme. During those two years, I studied at several universities and lived in three different countries: The Netherlands, Germany and overseas France. Within my field, I am mostly interested in the formation of species, the evolution of traits and the genetics behind both.
