After graduating as an equine veterinarian in 2008, I completed a PhD at Ghent University in equine echocardiography (tissue Doppler imaging and two-dimensional speckle tracking for quantification of left ventricular function). Since 2012, I have worked as a postdoctoral research fellow of the Research Foundation Flanders, investigating the influence of pulmonary hypertension and exercise training on right ventricular function. In 2015, I was appointed as assistant professor in veterinary clinical and communication skills at the faculty of veterinary medicine, Ghent University. I was responsible for establishing the skills laboratory where students can practice clinical and communication skills using dummy models and simulations. My areas of major professional interest are equine cardiology and ultrasound, veterinary education and veterinarian-client communication.
