I live in one of the most wonderful cities in the world. If you are nearby Ghent, I am always up for a cup of coffee.


I’m a researcher at Ghent University, at the research lab Internet and Data Lab, and I’m part of an interdisciplinary research institute called imec. My research focuses on enabling route planning on large scale with Linked Connections.

You can find a full list of my publication on my university’s page biblio.ugent.be, or on Google Scholar.
