I studied Medicine in Leiden and Applied Physics in Delft. In 2000, I got my PhD in Applied Physics from Delft, and registered as a clinical neurologist.
I’m heading the department of Clinical Neurophysiology of the Medisch Spectrum Twente, a large teaching hospital, and I chair Clinical Neurophysiology at the University of Twente (www.utwente.nl/tnw/cnph).
Our research involves the pathophysiology of epilepsy, ischaemia, brain monitoring in the ICU, and fundamentals of EEG generation.
I am a Senior Researcher at Roessingh Research and Development and also hold a position as a researcher at the University of Twente’s Biomedical Signals and Systems group.
My research interests include eHealth and Telemedicine, Requirements engineering, Design, mHealth, Personalization, and Information seeking behavior.
I love to analyse interesting physical phenomena and to solve mathematical puzzles. My goal is to understand the world every day a little more.
I currently work on understanding and predicting the behaviour of granular materials, ranging from pharmaceutical/food powders, raw materials in the mining and manufacturing industry, to geophysical landslides and avalanches. In particular, I work on contact mechanics (elasto-plastic-frictional contacts, wet and dry adhesion, sintering), discrete particle simulations (MercuryDPM.org), continuum-mechanical models for granular flows, and multiscale-coupling between discrete and continuum methods.
I am also cofounder and Chief Technology Officer of MercuryLab, providing industry access to particle simulation software. I am responsible for creating state-of-the-art computational tools to understand, predict and optimise industrial bulk handling and processing equipment. In particular, I am the lead developer of MercuryDPM, our innovative, open-source discrete particle solver, and MercuryCG, the advanced analysis tool integrated into MercuryDPM.
Wessel Wits is appointed Assistant Professor at the Laboratory of Design, Production and Management at the Faculty of Engineering Technology, University of Twente in the Netherlands. Dr. Wits has a special focus on Physics in Design. From an engineering perspective, successful product development is constantly challenged by considering novel technologies. For design engineers this requires both a thorough understanding of the underlying physics and physical phenomena, and a systematic way to transfer this knowledge to the product level. To better facilitate this, design support tools are researched specifically for the early stages of Engineering Design, the concept development phase.
I'm an assistant professor at the Centre of eHealth and Wellbeing Research at the University of Twente in the Netherlands. I received my PhD in 2012 at the University of Twente. My dissertation (Understanding adherence to web-based interventions) focused on keeping people engaged with (mental) health interventions, using persuasive technology. My research interests are in positive psychology and technology, persuasive technology, and developing and evaluating digital interventions. Ongoing research projects are focused on understanding why and how technology can support people to change their behavior. Methods used for this goal are e.g. analysis of logdata, experimental studies and randomized controlled trials. Examples of interventions I'm working on are a web-based gamified intervention based on positive psychology to increase wellbeing, a web-based ACT intervention to reduce depressive complaints and mobile apps to increase subjective wellbeing.
