I am a doctoral student at the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) in Brussels, Belgium studying the geochemical composition of thermal springs on active volcanoes in the Philippines.

I am also currently a science research specialist at the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) in the Philippines.

When I am not doing science, I play badminton, travel with my buddies or explore the beaches of the Philippines.

La Fossa Crater, Vulcano Island, Italy. I was lucky to be able to climb the top of Vulcano. This is when you are standing on the crater rim of La Fossa crater. 

Up close and personal with Cotopaxi volcano in Quito, Ecuador.I was lucky to be chosen as one of the participants to the VUELCO workshop. Cotopaxi volcano is one of the laboratory volcanoes of VUELCO because of its long period of unrest.
