Who am I ?

  • Clinical neuropsychologist since 2009

  • Crazy enough to do a PhD in parallel from my clinical activities from 2013 to 2018.

  • Invited lecturer at the Psychological Faculty of UCLouvain since 2017.

  • Pursuing the dream of continuously learning how human behave while helping others to take care of their mind.

Complementary useful skills:

  • Master in sorting IT cables of all sorts.

  • Extreme resilience to stress when facing wifi disconnection, computer crash and thousand of Excel  mixed up columns.

  • Strong ability to encourage communication between different alien languages (IT engineer vs psychologist)
