4TU.alumni event London

Did you know that London has one of the largest concentrations of our alumni outside of the Netherlands? An upcoming 4TU.alumni event in the city on Tuesday April 30 offers unique access to this network!

During this special gathering at the Royal Institute a selection of young alumni researchers linked to exciting areas will share details about their current work as well as their ambitions for the future (brief profiles follow). Also joining are startup founders linked to the '4TU' universities visiting London who are excited to talk with local alumni about their companies during the concluding borrel.

Event Details:

Date: Tuesday, April 30th

Time: 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Venue: Royal Institution - 21 Albemarle St, London W1S 4BS


Vincent Goverse (Alumnus TU Delft)

Vincent Goverse completed his double BSc. in Applied Mathematics and Applied Physics at the TUDelft. During his undergrad, he took a leave of absence to take part in the SpaceX Hyperloop Competition as part of the TU Delft team, where his responsibilities were the integrated testing and designing of its breaking system. He went on to complete an MSc. in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College London, where he focused on the more abstract field of Random Dynamical Systems (Chaos Theory) and decided to continue his studies in the field. He is currently completing a joint PhD at Imperial College London and Oxford University.

Gianna Kohl (Alumna University of Twente)

Gianna Kohl completed her degrees in Applied Psychology at Saxion University of Applied Sciences and in Positive Psychology & Technology at the University of Twente. Shortly after, she started working at University College London as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early-Stage Researcher in the DISTINCT network, which focuses on enhancing the social health of people living with dementia through technology. She is currently completing her PhD on the use of technology to support people with dementia in sharing their diagnosis with others.

Mathieu de Kruijf (alumnus TU Eindhoven)

Mathieu de Kruijf graduated with a BSc/MSc in Applied Physics from the TU/e. During this period a passion for integrating complex physics research into real world solutions grew. When the opportunity came for doing a PhD at UCL while working at the start-up Quantum Motion, Mathieu saw this as the perfect combination to learn more. This boundary between academia and commercialisation allows for unique collaborations from all sorts of people with varying backgrounds which he really enjoys.  Mathieu's research interest lies in the scalability of quantum computing using silicon spin qubit devices. Exploring the fundamental physical properties in these devices is essential but at the same time there is a need to scale up our measurement and control techniques to be able to operate and test larger and more complex quantum devices.

Julia Martin (Alumna Wageningen University & Research)

Julia Martin has a background in bio-engineering from the University of Barcelona, and in Food Chemistry and Consumer Science from Wageningen University. After Wageningen, she was a founder and later on an operator within the Cellular Agriculture space, mainly focusing in sustainable fats. She is currently Project Lead for Cellular Agriculture at the global sustainable food systems charity ProVeg International, where she spearheads research and thought around cellular agriculture, mainly focusing on maximising impact from this technologies through funding, consumer adoption and corporate engagement
