Ir. T.B. Hosman
Tim Hosman is a PhD student in a collaborative project between Electronic Components, Technology and Materials (ECTM) and Electronic Circuits and Architectures (ELCA) and is focussing on implementing dielectric spectroscopy as a novel sensing technique for organs-on-chip applications. Tim is passionate about electronics with a positive societal impact, particularly medical microsystems. He received his MSc degree Microelectronics in 2020 at the TU Delft, with a specialisation in bioelectronics.
Tim has previously worked as a electronics design engineer in the Electronic Instrumentation (EI) group at the TUDelft, in which he co-developed prototypes for portable ultrasound imaging. Namely, the ULIMPIA smart body patch and a transcranial ultrasound probe for CUBE.
For his graduation project, conducted at Fraunhofer IZM in Berlin, he has worked on a high-density interconnect technology optimised for flexible implantable devices. His work involved manufacturing challenges in flip-chip bonding, transfer processes and TPU lamination, as well as theoretical challenges such as routing optimisation.
Prior to his MSc, Tim has voluntarily dedicated a year as a Chief Electrical Engineer in Project MARCH in 2016-2017. This project is a team run by 31 students of the TU Delft that built an exoskeleton for paraplegics within a year, achieving second place in the Cybathlon Experience competition in 2017. Tim was lead engineer of 4 electrical engineers and main responsible for the full concept, design and realisation of the exoskeleton’s electrical system.
