About Me

Dr. Wouter Olthuis received his PhD in 1990 and is currently associate professor in the BIOS Lab-on-Chip group of the MESA+ Institute of Nanotechnology at the University of Twente and is as such responsible for the theme Electrochemical sensors and Sensor systems. He has been supervising many projects on both physical and (bio)chemical sensors and sensor systems for medical and environmental applications. He has co-authored over 120 papers (H=24) and 7 patents. From 2006 until 2011 he was also the Director of the Educational Programme of Electrical Engineering at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Twente. Currently, he is appointed officer on education in the executive committee of the IEEE Benelux section.
