About Me

I started my career at the Radboud University of Nijmegen where I studied Physics and got a master degree in Molecular and Laser Physics in 1994. I continued in Nijmegen with a Ph.D. project in physics in which I applied optical and laser diagnostic techniques to combustion process and got my Dr degree in 1999. After a Post doc position at the Delft University of Technology in the Thermal and Fluid Sciences group, where I applied laser techniques to the combustion of solid fuels, I moved to Enschede in July 2000. From then on I am working at the University of Twente in the group Thermal Engineering of the faculty Engineering Technology (ET). Besides research on combustion processes I am involved in teaching mechanical engineering students in the area of thermodynamics. During the first 12 years at the University of Twente my mean working area changed in the direction of education. In September 2012 I became programme coordinator of the bachelor programme of Mechanical Engineering for 0.5 fte. I combine this with the an other 0.5 fte that is filled with teaching and a bit of research in the area of Thermal and Fluids Engineering.

Research

Nowadays my research activities in the field of Thermal Engineering are limited as most of my time is devoted to teaching and coordination of the Bachelors programme Mechanical Engineering.

Education

I am involved in education in the field of Thermal and Fluids Engineering for the Mechanical Engineering Programme. My main course is the Engineering Thermodynamics for the fist year Bachelor students which is part of module 2, Energy and Materials and module 3, Energy and Sustainability. I am also involved in the project of those modules, Analysis and Design of an innovative Energy System.
