Born in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, in 1951. He studied Electrical Engineering at the Delft University of Technology, gaining a masters degree (with honours) and a Ph.D. degree (with honours).
In 1974 he started as a research scientist with the NIWARS (Dutch governement Institute for Remote Sensing Research). Joined the Delft University of Technology in 1976 with responsibility for research in Microwave Remote Sensing and FM-CW radar development. Switched to optical communication in 1981 where he has set up facilities for design, fabrication and characterisation of silicon-based integrated optical devices. He invented the phased-array wavelength demultiplexer (PHASAR, AWG or WGR) and worked on multimode interference (MMI) couplers, optical switches, measurement and characterisation of electro-optical devices and development of Computer Aided Design Tools. Since 1986 his focus has broadened to InP based semiconductor devices. From 1991-1992 on leave at the Institute of Quantum Electronics, ETH Zürich, where he worked on development of a fast and compact polarisation independent optical switch. In 1997 he received an IEEE/LEOS Technical Award for the invention of the phased-array demultiplexer. Member of IEEE-LEOS and the Dutch Society for Electronics and Radio Engineering.
