Biography

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” (www.alakart.nl) at the Universiteit.

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

Curriculum Vitae

Publications

Selection of publications:

A Fully Automatic Press for Mechanical and Electrical Testing of ITER Conductors Under Transverse Cyclic Load.

http://2005.cec-icmc.org/cec-icmc2003/program/Format.asp?paperNumber=M1-D-13

The paper describes the design of a cryogenic fully automatic press to investigate the changes in the mechanical and electrical properties of the full-size ITER cable samples (Nb3Sn) under transverse variable load along 40,000 cycles and at 4.2 K.
