Welcome to my personal website!

I'm a musician, educator and researcher, currently working as a postdoc at IPEM, a center of excellence in research on musical interaction (Ghent University, Belgium), and as PhD student in the Arts at Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp.

I devote my time to the development of [research & practice]-based innovative movement-based approaches to instrumental music teaching and learning.

The leitmotiv in my work is the integration of theoretical, empirical and practical research. Importantly, my research is constantly inspired by my experience as performer and teacher.

Next to my work as an academic, I am guest lecturer at the Music conservatoires of The Hague (NL) and Antwerp (BE).


From April to June 2021, I will do an internship at Graz University (Austria), in collaboration with dr. Andrea Schiavio

My Creative Europe project "Resilience in Resonance" has been positively evaluated. (EAC/S53/2019 “Music Education and Learning”)
