Ir. M.P. Nijgh


Martin Nijgh obtained his MSc at Delft University of Technology in 2017. After his graduation, he directly started working on his PhD project on demountable and reusable composite structures. Besides his doctoral studies, he is actively involved in the education-related activities.


The main focus of Nijgh's research is on demountable and reusable composite structures. Technical solutions for these structures are addressed at the material level (0.1 m), component level (1 m) and building level (>10 m).
