Gijsbertus de With is full professor emiritus in materials science. He graduated from Utrecht State University and received his Ph.D in 1977 from the University of Twente on the 'Structure and charge distribution of molecular crystals'. In the same year he joined Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven. In 1985 he was appointed part-time professor and in 1996 he became full professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interests include the chemical and mechanical processing as well as the chemo-mechanical behaviour of multi-phase materials. He has (co)-authored more then 250 research papers and holds about 15 patents. Throughout he has cooperated with other researchers, both from academia and industry. He is a member of the Advisory board of the J. Eur. Ceram. Soc., co-organised the first Eur. Ceram. Soc. Conference and was co-organiser of the Coatings Science International conferences from 2005 - 2015. From 2006 to 2015 he was also chairman of the Soft Matter CryoTEM Research Unit. In 2006 his two-volume monograph 'Structure, Deformation, and Integrity of Materials' was published, followed by 'Liquid-State Physical Chemistry' in 2013. His third book, this time on 'Polymer Coatings' appeared in september 2018. He part-time retired in december 2015.
