My PhD thesis was in the field of nuclear fusion. In particular I studied electron transport in spherical tokamak plasmas. The work was undertaken at UKAEA Fusion at the Culham Science Centre near Oxford (UK), while I was employed by FOM in Nieuwegein (the Netherlands).
I obtained my MSc in Applied Physics at Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands) on the topic of reactor physics. I studied two-phase flows in natural-circulation fission reactors.
