Koen van Dongen

Research Interest: Imaging, Inversion, and modelling of nonlinear ultrasonic wave fields

Academic Background:
Koen W.A. van Dongen received his M.Sc. degree in experimental physics from the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, in 1997. From 1998 to 2002, he worked as a scientist on the design of a directional borehole radar system for the geophysical survey company T&A Survey in Amsterdam. In 2001, the system won the Wall Street Journal Innovation Award and in 2002, his research resulted in a Ph.D. degree in technical sciences from the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands. During 2002 and 2003, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Laboratory of Electromagnetic Research, Faculty of Information Technology and Systems, Delft University of Technology. This project concerned the imaging of buried objects using electromagnetic wave fields. From 2003 to 2005, he used his Marie-Curie Intra-European fellowship to work on non-invasive thermometry during hyperthermic cancer therapy using ultrasound in the Ultrasonic Research Group, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University College Cork, Ireland. In 2006, he returned to the Delft University of Technology as an Assistant Professor. His major research interest is in acoustics, and specifically in imaging, inversion, and modelling of nonlinear ultrasonic wave fields in inhomogeneous media for seismic applications.
