Biography

Fredrik Creemer was born in Amsterdam in 1972. He received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering in 1995 from Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands. In 1996 he obtained the DEA degree in electronics from the Universit� Paris-Sud, Orsay, France. He worked towards his PhD degree in the Electronics Instrumentation Laboratory in Delft, which he received in 2002. As a circuit designer he worked with SystematIC Design BV, and as a MEMS designer with the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience in Delft. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor with DIMES (Delft Institute of Microsystems and Nanoelectronics) at Delft University of Technology.

Dr. Creemer�s research interests include MEMS design and technology; in particular, microreactors, nanoparticle characterization, microheaters, MEMS for harsh environments, vacuum devices, thin-film silicon carbide, and wafer-level packaging. With his group he develops a.o. nanoreactors that are used for for in situ microscopy of nanomaterials under industrially relevant conditions. He is author of 22 papers in research journals, 45 papers at peer-reviewed conferences, and he is holding two patents.

Fredrik Creemer is lecturing 'Materials for Nanoelectronics and MEMS' in the MSc programme on Microelectronics. He is co-author and tutor of the design project �EPO-1� for first-year students in Electrical Engineering. He is member of the IEEE and served in the Technical Program Committee of the IEEE Sensors Conference. He was the recipient of the Else Kooi Award in 2002 and the Veni Grant in 2006. In his spare time he likes hiking and swimming. He is council member of the Oecumenical Church of Delft and of MoTiv.
