He is currently working on a project with the Belgian research institute IMEC involving on-chip single cell sorting, for which he is developing high-speed image processing methods.

He received a Master of Industrial Sciences and Technology at Erasmushogeschool Brussel (2005), and a M.S. in Electrical Engineering at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (2007). During his M.S. work at the VUB, he worked on watermarking techniques in the transform domain and was awarded the FWO (Science Foundation, Flanders) - Barco scientific prize.

For his Ph.D. (2014) studies at Vrije Universiteit Brussel, he was working under the guidance of Prof. Ingrid Daubechies (Duke University) and focused on image processing for digital art investigation. He also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Duke University (October 2014 – January 2016) with Prof. Daubechies. As part of his research work he has co-developed a tool to remove cradling artifacts in X-ray images of paintings. The project resulted in a free-to-download software package and Photoshop plug-in called Platypus. He has authored several peer-reviewed journal and international conference papers.
