I work at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and at the Faculty of Applied Economics of the University of Antwerp.

I am also affilliated with the research group Differential Geometry and Mechanics of Ghent University.

I am a member of the Geometry, Mechanics and Control Network and of the IRSES Network `Geometric Mechanics', within FP7 (EU).
