Ruben Faelens is a Scientist at SGS Exprimo. He obtained a Master’s degree from the KULeuven (Belgium) in Computer Science in 2010. He also studied abroad in Stockholm (Sweden) for 6 months. Ruben joined Altran, a software consultancy firm, in late 2010. There, Ruben was involved in the development of business software for (primarily) pharmaceutical companies as the lead of a team of programmers. This allowed him to become acquainted with a variety of subjects: pharmacoeconomics, pharmacometrics, production planning for oil fields, HR planning, failure testing of engine components and simulation of distributed heating plants. In September 2013, Ruben joined ONE Agency as a Technical Sales and Bid Manager. In March 2014, Ruben joined Exprimo, where he can combine his strong interest in the field of pharmacometrics with his passion for IT.
Ruben focuses on simulation projects (clinical trial optimization, power calculation, therapeutic drug monitoring), as well as the internally developed pharmacometric simulation software.
