I'm a Master in Biology, who studied at the Catholique University of Leuven (KUL). My Master thesis was entitled 'The influence of management options on the species composition of the vegetation and the seed bank in calcareous grasslands in Voeren, Belgium'. Now, I started as a Ph.D. student at the department of earth and environmental sciences, Faculty of bio-engineering, KUL. My project is about green roofs. More specific, I will do a vegetation study in the Mediterranean region, to select plant species suitable for extensive green roofs.
