Krijn Tiek was born in Almelo, the Netherlands, in 1992. After graduating high school in 2011 he started studying at CHS Windesheim in Zwolle (NL) to become a high school physics teacher. After 2 years, in 2013, he made the switch to the Applied Physics study at Saxion University in Enschede (NL), wanting to focus more on physics and postpone the idea of one day teaching at a high school. Several internships saw him working with companies like Thales in Hengelo (NL), Anteryon in Eindhoven (NL) and Apollo-Vredestein in Enschede (NL). He obtained his Bachelor degree in Applied Physics in 2018. After graduating, he started fulfilling the job of general support engineer at the MD&I group at the University of Twente.
Form experience during his internships Krijn developed at interest in system and product optimization, automatization and integration. His current job at the University satisfies those interests and is a prime example of what he likes to research.
