I'm born and raised in Leuven, Belgium (the town where Stella Artois is made). Currently, I'm in the last year of my PhD and eagerly looking forward to a post-doc life (hopefully abroad).
Lodewijk was a fabulous guest; we all appreciated his company, quick wit and insight and his ability to converse on any topic from the personal to the political. In English besides. (He's a dutch-speaking Belgium) We spent many evenings together hanging out and talking n the kitchen. At other times, he was discrete, polite and easy-going, a mature professional who anyone would enjoy as a guest.
