After obtaining a master in physiotherapy, I started a research career in which I was quickly confronted with advanced statistical analysis that I had never heard of. This triggered me to focus on statistics whereby I successfully obtained a master in statistical data analysis in 2018 and additional specializations in epidemiology and public health methodology in 2020 and biostatistics in 2022.
In 2019, I obtained my PhD entitled “Objective measurements in patients with chronic low back & leg pain”. I have a specific focus on chronic pain and neuromodulation, combined with a keen interest in statistics. Currently, I'm focusing on a holistic outcome in chronic pain patients as a junior FWO postdoctoral fellow. I'm assistant Professor at Vrije Universiteit Brussel and affiliated clinical assistant Professor at Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine, Florida Atlantic University.
