Johan has a PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Twente in the Netherlands (2011). His PhD topic was microelectromechanical actuators (the inverse of the accelerometer in your mobile device) for probe-based data storage. You can also make music with them. He worked on the physical aspects of magnetic tape recording at IBM Research - Zurich from 2011 to 2015. In 2017, he joined the Robotics and Mechatronics group at the University of Twente, where he is currently assistant professor of Inspection Robotics.
