I am a pediatric resident driven to offer every child a hopeful future through medicine.

After completing my medical training at the University of Antwerp in 2015, I worked on and completed my PhD project at the University of Antwerp titled cannabis allergy and associated food allergies: exploring their true colors. Together with the talented team at the department of Immunology/Allergology we were able to show for the very first time that cannabis allergy can cause anaphylaxis like reactions in 1 out of 5 affected and that almost half suffer from severe food allergies as well. We developed and researched the first validated adn standardized cannabisdiagnostics, a BAT, sIgE and skinpricktest which are now offered and used at the Univeristy Hospital of Antwerp. Aside from the research itself I believe scientific communication to the broader public is an important aspect of doing research. So, if you want to know more, feel free to visit, and for more information. 

In 2019, thanks to a VOCATIO scholarship, I had the privilige to study pediatric infectious diseases as a postgraduate student at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. From september 2019 I am active as a pediatric resident at the Amphia Hospital, Breda, the Netherlands.
