Dennis De Vriese (1996) studied history at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. During these studies he focused on early modern history and the history of consumption, resulting in 2018 in a masterpaper on the relationship between food and social inequality aboard the eighteenth-century Ostend Company ships. As of November 2018 he is a member of the Centre of Historical Research into Urban Transformation Processes (HOST) where he prepares a PhD under supervision of Prof. Dr. Wouter Ryckbosch on naturalness, tradition and the quality of meat products during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as  part of the interdisciplinary research program ‘Tradition and naturalness of animal products within a societal context of change’.
