I work in the research group Differential Geometry and Mechanics of Ghent University and I teach at the Faculty of Applied Economics of the University of Antwerp.

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