Hans van Hoek

I started my PhD with experiences as a marine engineer on both motor- and steamturbine driven ships at Shell Tankers, as manager (and problem solver) at a technical service and trainingdepartment of Wärtsilä, as designer of controlsystems for dairysystems at Stork Amsterdam and industrialsize diesel engines at Wärtsilä.

I did my master at the Technical Highschool of Delft, now University, started it at the electrotechnical department and finished it at the mechanical department with a thesis on the medical effects of a treatment.

The last 15 years I worked as a teacher in mechanical - and control engineering courses, was responsible for part-time studies, being a member of the technical business administration team and chairman of the board of examens of the technical department of the University of applied sciences Windesheim, Zwolle. There I changed lately position as researcher and lecturer to the professorship on polymer technology. My PhD topic is devulcanization of cartire rubber and the reusability of this for cartires.

I have been scubadiving, parachuting, canyoning, (see)sailing, canoing and semi-professional treeclimbing. I live in the area of Heino on a farm together with a very intelligent cat named Poespoes, a large, loud cock and some Welsumer chickens.
