RESEARCH PROFILE

Jan van Dijk is Associate Professor in the Elementary Processes in Gas Discharges group at Eindhoven University of Technology. His fields of interest include modelling of electro-magnetic fields and transport phenomena. In addition, he studies object-oriented code design and tries to use modern C++ idiom such as expression templates for solving coupled linearized systems of equations. Earlier projects included the modeling of non-thermal biomedical plasma sources and microwave plasma sources for the production of optical fibers.

ACADEMIC BACKGROUND

Jan van Dijk holds an MSc (1996) and a PhD (2001) in Applied Physics from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He then worked as postdoc in the Elementary Processes in Gas Discharges (EPG) group at TU/e, at the University of Illinois (USA) and at Keio University (Japan). In 2003, Van Dijk returned to TU/e and EPG and received a NWO VENI grant. He is now Associate Professor.
