My name is Wouter and I was born in Curaçao in 1957. I studied mechanical engineering at the HTS of Enschede (1980). In 2000 I started working on the University of Twente as an Technician in the Low Temperature group of superconductivity. 

Since 2008 I join in the group Biomedical engineering as an technician.

Additional to my work I join the student karting club “A la Kart” ( at the Universiteit.

Before 2000 I worked at several companies as a mechanical-, development- and technical engineer.
