I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.
