I am teaching & supervising students of mechanical engieering and industrial design engineering during their studies (both in their bachelor and in the master courses).
Most direct collaegues and students just use my nickname 'Tox', to avoid any misunderstandings.
Although I have a mechanical engieering background (graduated on the conversion of syngas to secundary energy carriers), I have been involved in teh stduies of Industrial Design Engineering in Twente, from the start.
My expertise is clearly on the field of Product Lifecycle Assessments (LCA's) and especially on the development of impact assessment methods. Related to these subjects I an involved in sustainability related subjects. And I am involved in internal and external projects related to the Circular Economy.
With our department of Design, Production & Management (DPM) I'am a boardmember of the association Optimus (as the treasurer).
