PERSONAL PROFILE

I am a PhD researcher at the KU Leuven Faculty of Architecture, where I work on the research project Catholic Territories in a Suburban landscape: Religion and Urbanization in Belgium, 1945-1975. My main research interest is in religious architecture of the second half of the twentieth century. My current research focuses on the use of architecture and urban planning in territorial strategies of the Roman Catholic Church in post-war Belgium. As a teaching assistant I am also involved in courses in architectural history and research methodology. During my studies in architectural engineering and conservation of monuments and sites I have been actively involved in the discussion on the future of religious heritage.
