PhD Libre de Bruxelles
I was born in Belgium 1976. From 1994 to 1998, I studied mathematics at the Université Libre de Bruxelles. From October 1998 to January 2002, I was a PhD student in the Service de Géométrie of the Département de Mathématiques with a grant from the Fonds National de la Recherche Scientifique. Since January 24, 2002, I am a doctor in science. From October 2002 to September 2003, I worked at Michigan State University with Professor Jonathan Hall, thanks to the Belgian American Education Foundation.

Then I was back in Brussels until 2008, as a Chargé de Recherche of the FNRS. After having visited Cheryl Praeger at UWA in 2006 and in 2007, I got a position at UWA as a Research Associate from September 2008 to September 2011, working with Prof. Praeger's team. I am also Collaborateur Scientifique at ULB.
