 In 1994, he began to study engineering at the University of Brussels (ULB).
 From 1996 to 1998, he studied at the Ecole Centrale de Lille (France) as part of the TIME doublegraduating exchange program.
 In 1999, he graduated as Engineer in Physics at the University of Brussels and simultaneously as Engineer at the Ecole Centrale de Lille.
 In 2000, he got a degree of Advanced Studies (DEA) in Theoretical Physics at the ULB.
 From 2000 to 2004, he did a PhD thesis at QuIC, where he also worked as a teaching assistant for courses of information theory and quantum physics.
 From 2004 to 2006, he held a postdoctoral position at the Laboratoire de Recherche en Informatique in Orsay, France.
 From January to December 2007, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher of the University of California, Berkeley, USA.
 From January to May 2008, he was a Postdoctoral Researcher of the Belgian FNRS, based at the University of Brussels.
