PhD Candidate

About Me

Bob graduated for Industrial Design Engineering at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. With his graduation he won the award for the best thesis of my faculty (Faculty of Engineering Technology). Currently, Bob is working on the development of a dynamic brace as a user-friendly alternative in the treatment of clubfoot. In his work and free time Bob tries to contribute to improving the world, both environmentally and socially.
