Being always fascinated by the universe and particularly spaceflight, I decided early that I wanted to study and work in the field of aerospace engineering. I’m a very motivated, reliable, helpful, internationally oriented and well adaptive university master student who speaks multiple languages. Growing up in a town near Antwerp, Belgium, doing my university studies (completely in English) in Delft, the Netherlands and performing a nine month internship at EADS Astrium Space Transportation in Bremen, Germany gave me the opportunity of living and working for prolonged time in three different countries, while meeting people from all over Europe gave me the practical experience to practice daily the usage of major important European languages such as English, French and German. I obtained the Master of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) with writing a master thesis in the field of space propulsion which is my main passion.
