About me

Working currently as Coordinator of Education on Entrepreneurial Learning at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, my focus remains on teaching and mentoring innovation and entrepreneurship with multidisciplinary teams of students through a challenge-based education approach. Aiming at creating the π-shape engineers of the future, I pay particular attention to cultural interaction and professional complementarities as key elements in team dynamics. I have built my experience working, not only for international organizations and private sector, but also for the EIT Digital I&E Education team. I am used to saying to my students that the most important capacity is to innovate the proper self and be entrepreneurial throughout your professional life. And in that, I remain an example: I have started as a journalist and innovated myself to an I&E teacher. I always like to challenge my students in mentoring but also in playing soccer and volleyball.

The most important capacity is to innovate the proper self and be entrepreneurial throughout your professional life.

During recent years, I became more aware that a vast majority of technological advancements are not put to their full use in the current society. Some reasons for this are the fear of change that a lot of people experience, the lack of knowledge and awareness of the newest applications and because the existing infrastructure cannot keep up with the speed of technological innovation. Therefore, my goal is to inform people about the newest possibilities of the technology of this time and the added value these advancements can have to their daily life by making seemingly complicated technologies easy to use and understand for everyone. This is also why I decided to join Aristotle. I believe that there is still a lot of ground to cover in cognitive training and that we as Aristotle can make a difference.

  • UX/UI Manager & Assistant Software Developer
  • Current Study: MSc Human-Technology Interaction – TU/e

I have a background in Automotive Engineering at Fontys and after completing the pre-master at the start of last year, I started the master. Due to the current global pandemic, the international semester had been cancelled. As an alternative, I knew I wanted to do something pro-active and work on a practical project instead of following more theoretical courses, and the TU/e Innovation Space project could offer just that. At Aristotle I can apply and broaden my knowledge of cognition, combined with a diverse multidisciplinary team there is a lot for me to learn! Together with Aristotle, I believe we can explore and create effective cognitive training tools and lift athletes to the next level both personally and professionally.

  • Data Scientist & Software Developer
  • Current Study: MSc Data Science – EIT Digital Master School

I have the luck to study in two of the top universities in Europe, TU/e in Eindhoven and KTH in Stockholm and also get a minor in Entrepreneurship besides the Data Science track. I would describe myself as analytical, organizing and pragmatic. I joined Aristotle to get out of my comfort zone, develop my personal skills in social and technical aspects but also implement my knowledge attained from my studies so far in a real-life problem, in realistic conditions. I believe we can really make an impact with innovative ideas and tools but also highlight the advantages of cognitive training in football or in general.
