Vincent obtained a M.Sc. in Physics from the University of Namur in 2003 and a Ph.D. in Cosmology at the University of Louvain in 2012.
His research focused on alternatives to Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and the dark energy problem in Cosmology. In this latter perspective, he was a member of a consortium which performed the largest and most advanced cosmological simulation ever run. He also contributed to the management of large research computing clusters where he acquired an expertise in several aspects of intensive computing and massive data environments. As an invited lecturer at the Louvain School of Management in Mons, he teaches Physics courses for M.S. Business Engineering students. He also remains active in fundamental research in collaboration with the department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Namur.
Under clear skies, Vincent can be seen with a telescope shooting stars and galaxies in Belgium or in the Alps.
