K.N. van Dalen (Karel)
Karel van Dalen graduated from the Faculty of Civil Engineering at TU Delft in 2006, with a thesis on moving load dynamics.
He received a Ph.D. degree in 2011 for his research focussed on acoustic characterization of porous media, which he performed in the group of Applied Geophysics and Petrophysics (TU Delft). In that group, he also worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the field of seismic interferometry.
Currently, he is a tenured Assistant Professor in the group of Dynamics of Solids & Structures at the same university. He leads research projects into the multi-scale dynamics of railway transition zones, dynamics of offshore wind turbine support structures, and tools for characterization of dynamic soil properties.
