“Evaluation is my passion. I seek to develop meaningful, trustworthy and inexpensive methods to evaluate Information Retrieval systems.” Spanish native Julian Urbano Merino is a new tenure tracker in the Multimedia Computing Group.
“Organs-on-Chips are needed to study how diseases evolve and to develop treatments. Specific organ functionalities can be recreated in an accurate and reproducible way using the 3D micro/nano structuring of silicon and polymer developed at TUD, in combination with human stem cells." Lina Sarro (Electronic Components, Technology and Materials) is PI of the Netherlands Organ-on-Chip Initiative, and they have just received a €18,8 million ‘Gravity’ grant from NWO.
“The lights needs to be kept on in the future. It is important to get students excited about power hardware too. I do that by integrating practical experience into my lectures. Like the anecdote about how a mosquito affected the testing of a 20m long 800kV HVDC wall bushing.” Peter Vaessen has recently been appointed as part-time professor in the DC systems, Energy conversion & Storage group. He divides his time between DNVGL and TU Delft (80/20). He teaches courses in High Voltage technology and ... (read more)
