Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR)
Head Structures Technology Department
I started to work at the National Aerospace Laboratory NLR in 1991. In my career at NLR I have worked on the design of composite post-buckled panels and crashworthiness of composite structures. I have been involved in several test campaigns of composite structures (e.g. as project leader of the full scale certification test on a composite horizontal stabilizer of the Fo100). Later I got involved in setting up a composite facility and was responsible for composite manufacturing programs that involved Resin Transfer Moulding, Automated Fibre Placement, autoclave curing and press forming. In 2004 I became head of the Structures technology Department of NLR. In 2018 I became technical director of the Development Centre for Composite Structures (DCMC).
