One of the things I enjoy the most about Belgium is the sheer beauty of the country, from its historic architecture to the numerous parks, pastures, and forests scattered through and around the city. So far, I’ve had the chance to visit Brussels, Ghent, and Antwerp. Each city, while similar in many respects, has something that makes it special. I especially liked Gent because it contains beautiful relaxing scenery yet retains the bustling lively big city feel.
While I have been afforded many opportunities to travel, the primary reason for my visit to Leuven is for work. Working at IMEC has been a very pleasant and fruitful experience so far. I recently finished designing a photolithography mask that will allow us to generate nanotopographically patterned substrates on which we will grow cardiac muscle cells.
