Jente Ottenburghs was born on the 7th of May 1988 in Belgium. After graduating from high school, he wasn’t sure to study biology or history. Eventually, the biological interests won over the historical ones and he enrolled in a Bachelor Biology at the University of Hasselt (Belgium). During this three-year period, he discovered the fascinating world of Evolutionary Biology, so he moved to Antwerp (Belgium) for a Master in Evolution and Behavioral Biology. After graduation, he worked as a chemistry teacher for a couple of months while still hoping for an academic career. In May 2012, the University of Wageningen (the Netherlands) provided the opportunity to start a PhD on the genetics of geese. More information on this research can be found here.
