Teaching Activities

In the Mechanical Engineering bachelor I provide courses on materials science in module 2 (“Materials Science 1”) and module 3 (“Materials Science 2”). I am also the module coordinator of module 2. Support is provided within some of the other modules.

Furthermore, I am involved with the minor “Design & Technological Challenges ME” and give guest lectures in a number of other minors.  

In the master phase I give the course on Moulding Technology and support a number of other courses, such as “Solids and Surfaces”, “Process Equipment Design” and “Design, Production and Materials”.


Research interest has always been very broad ranging from condition monitoring of u-PVC gas pipes, self-healing composites, plasticity in stainless steel and TRIP steel to X-ray analysis of various material systems. Current interest has shifted towards additive manufacturing of metals. Special attention is paid to solid state deposition approaches for aluminium and other alloys based on the in-house developed friction surface cladding technology.


Universiteit van Nederland

In May 2017 a 15 minutes course on car materials was given in the Universiteit-van-Nederland series. Please have look here (in Dutch).
