Trained as a cell biologist by the late Albert Claude (Nobel price of medicine 1974) in the Laboratory of Cell Biology, Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. PhD (1977) on a study of the three-dimensional structure of regenerating rat liver cells by means of serial sectioning electron microscopy. Publications on this subject in International Journal of Cell Biology together with Denise Thinès-Sempoux in the period 1977-1981.

Docent of Biochemistry and Biophysics in the Department of Applied Engineering of the Karel de Grote Hogeschool University College, Salesianenlaan 30, B-2660, Antwerp, Belgium, from 1977-2010.

Retired since 2010. Regular contact with Vladimir Matveev since 2011.

Studying the controversy between membrane-(pump)-theory and Ling's association-induction hypothesis,
particularly in view of the coherence of life.
Publications on this subject since 2006.
