Boom, Sanne van den

PhD Student

Sanne was born in Bergen op Zoom, the Netherlands. After finishing high school, she moved to Delft for a Bachelor's in Industrial Design at the TU Delft, during which she was active as a teaching assistant in several mechanics courses.

Enjoying mechanics more than design, she decided to do a bridging minor to Mechanical Engineering, where she did her Master's as well. During her Master's, she did an internship project on topology optimization of electrode patterns on solar cells. She graduated cum laude with a project on topology optimization including constraints on the buckling load, working in the SOM group of Precision and Microsystems Engineering. Now, she is working on a PhD project on mechanical metamaterials.
