About me

Hello! I’m a futurist & environmentalist from Brussels, based in London.

I currently study systems theory with a focus on space & climate. Since last year, I’ve been working at Seraphim Capital, the world’s first VC fund for space technology startups. This year, I founded the UCL Space Society and I’m the Chairman of UCL Green Economy. In 2016, I co-founded the AIBE Summit – Artificial Intelligence in Business & Ethics, which I manage as a board member. As an undergrad, I studied Law at UCL with a focus on EU & Environmental Law, as well as Philosophy of Science at LSE.

My main interests include space, nature, philosophy, and music. I’m particularly interested in addressing the intersection between space technology and environmental science. With the rise in low-cost rockets and small satellites enabling scientific & commercial access to space, there are now unprecedented opportunities for Earth observation. I believe that this has the potential to not only provide us with great levels of insight for climate monitoring, but also witness the overwhelming beauty of our planet. In my free time, I enjoy biking, hiking, photography, and playing guitar & drums.

My life is mostly about exploring the big picture. What is the nature of reality? What are the laws that govern our physics? How does artificial intelligence emerge from neural networks? How can we transition towards green cities & sustainable lifestyle? Are there exoplanets out there with astrobiology? Will we ever become a multi-planetary species? How can we explain such elusive concepts as spacetime, consciousness, and complex systems? Let’s find out!
