My academic past

I studied Computer Science (Informatica) at the Universitair Centrum Antwerpen (RUCA, Antwerp, Belgium) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB, Brussel, Belgium). I received extra credits for theoretical biology courses at the department of Biology at the Universitaire Instelling Antwerpen (UIA, Antwerpen, Belgium). I have received my Ph D on July, 5 2005 from the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e, Eindhoven, the Netherlands). My dissertation details stochastic models of population genetics and fundamental research to understand the behavior of populations in dynamic environments. High performance computational techniques were employed to study the limit behavior of these systems in static and dynamic fitness environments, co-evolution and evolutionary game theory. I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the same university.
