His Bachelor thesis dealt with the synthesis of push-pull porphyrin materials for organic electronics (group of Prof. W. Maes). For his Master in Chemistry, he went to the KU Leuven, where he worked on radical C-H alkylations of BODIPY dyes during his master thesis (group of Prof. W. Dehaen). After finishing his Master studies in 2017, he returned to Hasselt University to start a PhD in the DSOS group.
