In 2009, I graduated as Master in Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy at KU Leuven, Belgium. After graduation, I started working in a private practice to further develop my skills as a physical therapist.
It has always been my desire to keep individuals physically active across their lifespan and help people achieving their individual goals. Throughout the years, I developed a special interest and expertise in prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal lower extremity injuries.
My passion for physical therapy has brought me into the combination of clinical practice and research. In 2015, I finished my PhD, which was focused on postural control in relation to ACL injuries and chronic ankle instability. My postdoctoral research activities at KU Leuven and Hasselt University (Belgium) were focused on the optimization of assessment and rehabilitation of ACL injuries and running-related injuries.
I have published numerous papers in international peer-reviewed journals, and have frequently presented at national and international conferences, symposia, workshops and podcasts to translate research to practice.
Clinically, I am mainly consulted in function of lower extremity rehabilitation, injury prevention and performance enhancement.
The unique combination of my research work with my clinical and teaching experience significantly contributed to my highly-valued national and international reputation and my ability to develop novel, original and clinically-relevant ideas with vital impact in my field.
Next to my work, I love to be physically active, play football, go for a run and having good times with my family and friends.
