He started his career at the Flemish Institute of Health Promotion, then made a PhD at LUCAS center for care research (Catholic University of Leuven). The last few years he worked at Sensoa (Flemish Expertise Center for Sexual Health), researching the needs of people living with HIV and coordinating the policy plan of Sensoa. This experience will be very valuable in valorizing the research results of PROMISE.
