About


Welcome on my academic website. It is an attempt to provide a single place for sharing all my scholarly undertakings...

I was born (1978) in Ghent, Belgium, where I also graduated (2002) and received my PhD degree (2009) in Archaeology. From 2010 to 2013, I held a part-time professorship.

Since 2010, I have been living and working in Vienna, Austria. First as a senior researcher at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Archaeological Prospection & Virtual Archaeology (LBI ArchPro), but between 2021 and 2023 also as the institute's vice-director. From 09-2021 to 08-2023, I coordinated the academic graffiti project INDIGO.

In October 2023, I started a full-time position as a senior scientist at the University of Vienna. Besides research, I will continue to teach the course I started in 2017: photography and image-based 3D modelling for heritage purposes.

I do not have any special talent. I am only passionately curious about:
  • imaging & image processing
  • image-based 3D surface modelling
  • spatio-temporal + semantic data structuring & reasoning
  • scientific visualisations
  • colourimetry
  • statistics
My endeavours in these fields aim to improve data acquisition, data management and information extraction procedures for the benefit of archaeology and cultural heritage at large. My work is also guided by the words of philosopher John Dewey (1859-1952):
≪  Theory without practice is empty. Practice without theory is blind.
