In 2017, after completing a bioinformatics thesis project in the CompOmics group, I obtained my MSc degree in Biomedical Sciences at Ghent University. Since January 2018, I am continuing the work of my master thesis as an FWO-SB PhD fellow in CompOmics, under the supervision of prof. Sven Degroeve and prof. Lennart Martens.

My research mainly involves applying Machine Learning to proteomics data, with a focus on the identification of post-translationally modified peptides. I am also a member of the European Bioinformatics Community organizational committee and help developing community standards in computational mass spectrometry at HUPO-PSI.
