Hi, I’m David. I’m a father of 2 kids. I grew up and currently live in Belgium, but I had the chance to live in the US and in Japan. I’m interested in a variety of topics, from physics to the role of power in modern capitalism.

As a scientist, I authored one book and 30+ research papers in statistical physics and thermodynamics, inspiring research that continues today (1200+ citations, 100+ last year). I obtained a PhD in Physics from the Université Libre de Bruxelles and a Postdoc in Computational Neuroscience from Yale University. I received multiple awards, such as the Ilya Priogine Prize for thermodynamics and FNRS grants.

I also worked in various business and leadership roles. I worked in the software industry, and I’m an experienced McKinsey consultant in strategy and sustainability, advising clients in the tech and agriculture sectors.

Finally, one of my long time passion is game design, from board games to video games and tabletop role-playing games. I’m now dedicating time to write and publish my game projects.
