Currently working at DEKRA Rail (Before 2015 this was called Plurel, and before that DeltaRail, AEA Technology Rail and NSTO) in Utrecht. Here I do research on plastics and rubber and all kind of other tests as well, mainly on rail fastening systems.
I also started the development of a system to save the life of "Jumpers", people who commit suicide by being ran over by a train. The basics of the invention were patented, but development is stopped at the moment for commercial reasons. Download the patent here: NL1027916, publication date June 30, 2006
