ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
Maxime Defour studied chemical engineering and material science at “Université Libre de Bruxelles” and “Vrije Universiteit Brussels” where he graduated in 2013. His love for science pushed him to pursue a PhD in the field of polymers commonly called plastics. In parallel to his PhD, he followed a master in management and economy at “Solvay Brussels School”. Aside from its studies, Maxime is involved in multiple projects and associations; “B-scholarship” aims helping students to study and get an experience abroad, “Carpe Marem” is a project which consists in raising funds around a sportive project (swimming the English Channel).
Daniel Pérez does a PhD in Physics at KULeuven about superconducting materials and he is a passionate of science communication. He popularizes science by using a blog, a YouTube channel, Twitter and Facebook. He also does stand up scientific comedy and was the first Audience Award winner of FameLab Belgium 2015.
Nils Van Dessel studies physics and astronomy at Ghent University where he graduated in 2014. Since then, he has been active as a PhD student at the department of Physics and Astronomy.. As part of the research group on theoretical nuclear and statistical physics, he works on the theoretical modelling of neutrino-argon interactions.
