Brussels, Belgium, Europe
"Transport is a mean for achieving an end: This is how I also describe myself. Serving as a long-standing collaborator at Y4PT has been a unique and worthy experience for bridging opportunities for today's young people and future generations from all over the world by advocating and envisioning all together not only an environmental-friendly mobility, but also one that treats all human beings in a horizontal way, wide-ranging and accessible to everyone."

At Y4PT he is in charge of transport-related core technical issues such as knowledge, learning, research, development, operations management, among others. Under his tenure one of the Y4PT’s flagship projects, the Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon series, was acknowledged by the European Mobility Week Secretariat (European Commission) as one of the best practices of 2017.
