Dietmar joined NLO in 2018.



Dietmar works in the areas of biotechnology and chemistry. As a quantum chemist, he analyses chemical reactions at a fundamental level, both in the lab and using computer models. This reflects his passion for organic and bio-organic chemistry. As a cell and genetic engineer, he sees chemistry come to life in a living cell. As a bioscience engineer, he connects those two worlds.



Dietmar graduated with a degree in bioscience engineering (magna cum laude) from Ghent University in 2012, after which he earned a PhD in molecular modelling and quantum chemistry, in close collaboration with the pharmaceutical industry. During his PhD research, he authored and co-authored eight scientific publications.
