Director JIVE

From September 1 2007 I am the director of JIVE This includes being the coordinator of NEXPReS. Before I was the head of software and I still feel intimately involved in the RD projects described on the projects page.

I continue to do, astronomical research, with a little help from my friends. In this science allocation I also do a few other instrumentation projects that are not VLBI

Professor Galactic Radio-astronomy at Sterrewacht Leiden

One day a week, mostly Wedenesdays, I travel to Leiden to concentrate on scientific research and get in toch with, for example, mm-astronomy.

I have a desk in room HL 421a. I can receive e-mail on my Leiden account and I have a mailbox, but I prefer to receive everything on my Dwingeloo address.
