In Memoriam: Wouter van Kleunen

It is with pain in my heart that I would like to inform you of the sad news that our former PhD student and colleague Wouter van Kleunen passed away at the age of 40. Wouter was my student since many years, did his masters here, his PhD research, was a postdoc, and was founder and CEO of a spin-off company Locus Positioning.

With a creative, open and curious attitude, he was always ready to help others. Everybody that was working with him, was impressed by his deep knowledge, and kind attitude. 

With him we lose a smart, passioned, honest and sweet person and someone with an enormous passion for technology. Wouter will be greatly missed.

We will keep Wouter, Chantal and Lukas, family, friends and those close to him in our thoughts and send our heartfelt condolences in this time of great loss.
