Research profile

In 1974 graduated at Eindhoven University of Technology, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering. From 1974-1978, also at TUE/W, Ph.D.work on Dynamics of continua. In 1978-1881 senior researcher at TNO (Organisation for Applied Scientific Research), Delft. Topics: Structural Dynamics, System reliability. Since 1981 Associate Professor ar TU-Eindhoven, Dept. of Mechanical Engineering. Fields of interest: Nonlinear Dynamics, Modal Analysis and Rotor Dynamics. Since nov. 2000, Main task: Director of Education Additional Educational tasks in 2002-2003: Mechanical Vibrations (lecture/guided selfstudy, 2nd year); Numerical and Experimental Analysis of Linear Dynamic Systems,lecture, 3rd year; DBL-project Dynamical systems, Trim 1.3.

In June, 2008 finished as Director of Education. Since then (regular) Associate Professor in the Dynamics and Control Group again. Also parttime TU/e projectleader for HBO-TU/e student transition. Main Educational tasks: 2nd year Mechanical Vibrations, 4th year Rotordynamics, 1st year DBL project
