In 2013, I graduated as a Master in Special Needs Education at Ghent University. After that, I worked for two years as a researcher for E-QUAL, a center of expertise regarding Quality of Life within the faculty of Health, Education and Social Work of University College Ghent. As a member of E-QUAL I worked on a project about social entrepreneurship, a research project concerning Quality of Life in persons with Anorexia Nervosa and a project about emotional development in people with an intellectual disability. At the moment I started a PhD, in which I am focusing on phenomenological research about recovery in persons with dual diagnosis.
