About me

Since March 2018 I am working at ASML in the Metrology department. As a "subFunction Architect" (a.k.a. Software Architect / Lead Software Engineer) I am in charge of the deliveries and roadmap of a team of software engineers. ASML is a major producer of wafer scanners (machines that make computer chips). The work of my team involves writing software to do the measurements needed to work at a nanometer scale.

Before starting at ASML I completed a PhD in computer science within the Applied Geometric Algorithms group at Eindhoven University. I did my research under the supervision of prof. dr. Bettina Speckmann and was co-supervised by dr. Kevin Verbeek. My thesis is titled "Geographic Graph Construction and Vizualization" and is freely available to download from the group website.


Topics in Computer Science / Software engineering which I am currently interested in:

  • Computational geometry
  • Software architecture
  • C++17/20
  • Computer graphics
  • C++ Metaprogramming
