Lauren Janssens graduated with a Master of Physics from the University of Antwerp in 2019. In the last year of his study, he did an internship at VITO where he contributed to air quality forecasting models. Here he discovered his passion for Data Analytics and Data Science.
After graduating, he started a position as coordinator of traffic data at the Agency for Roads and Traffic. In one of the projects, he leveraged available log data from traffic light-controlled intersections which were until then underexploited.
