He participated in workshops and master classes with composers Brian Ferneyhough, Vinko Globokar, Toshio Hosokawa, Bernard Rands, Kevin Volans, and others. He has received grants from Meet the Composer, the French Ministere de la Culture, the Dutch Ministries of Culture and Foreign Affairs, as well as commissions from Daan Vandewalle, Essential Music and MATA.
