Research interests

He studied history at the University of Antwerp and the Università Ca'Foscari di Venezia, primarily with a focus on medieval and islamic history.

After graduating, he worked as a researcher at the University of Antwerp on the pilot project Time Travelling 2.0. The aim was creating a smartphone application in which historical data of inhabitants and images of the Antwerp neighbourhood Sint-Andries are visualised on historical maps. The result is the Sint-Andries Time Machine, and it can be downloaded from the App Store (Apple) and Google Play (Android).
