Personal Description

The human mind, and more specifically by human behaviour, fascinate me. Decision processes and the resulting outcomes are something that I deeply care to understand since it can lead both to positive and dreadful consequences. With environmental issues as we are aware of today, I think it is critical to give citizen the tools they need to make smarter, more sustainable choices, as well as to give them the voice to express themselves in this picture. In this frame, technology plays a central role since it can deliver information to citizen as well as collect and treat information from the field in order to provide citizens with comprehensive solutions to everyday problems.

I graduated in 2017 with a master’s degree in Work psychology, economical and organizational psychology (Université libre de Bruxelles), where I specialised in consumption psychology. My interest for consumer’s decision and sustainability led me to undertake a thesis on waste prevention behaviour.
I joined imec-SMIT-VUB in April 2018 to work on hackAIR, a European project about air quality..
