Johan Hoefnagels (1976) obtained a M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree in Applied Physics at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), with a Ph.D. thesis on advanced optical diagnostics of surface processes during thin film deposition. In 2005, he became assistant professor of mechanical engineering at the TU/e, with a focus on experimental micromechanics of thin films and interfaces, studying the systems’ mechanics by integrated mechanical-microscopic characterization of underlying micro-structures. Topics include delamination, ductile damage, size effects, flexible and stretchable electronics, and MEMS. He has (co-)authored ~60 journal publications and ~90 refereed proceedings/book contributions, acquired international research experience during extensive international visits (IMEC, Leuven, Belgium; SUNY, Albany, U.S.A.; NIST, Gaithersburg, U.S.A.; CSM, Golden, U.S.A.; and Harvard Univ., Cambridge, U.S.A.), and was awarded 3 NWO personal grants (Rubicon, Veni, and Vidi).
