Dr. Fred van Keulen
Delft University of Technology

Fred van Keulen received his M.Sc. degree in mechanical engineering (Cum Laude, 1987) and his doctorate (Cum Laude 1993) both from the Delft University of Technology. In 1999 he was rewarded an “Antoni van Leeuwenhoek” chair. As visiting researcher, he stayed in Japan, Switzerland, UK, Denmark and the US. His research activities focus on mechanics and structural optimization, in particular for high-tech applications. A focal point in his research is topology optimization for multi-physics, nonlinear and/or transient problems. Inhere, manufacturing induced aspects and manufacturability are key ingredients.
