    • Biography

    • Since 2010, Rutger Timmer has worked as a patent attorney for V.O., writing and defending patents on a variety of physics-related and other topics. He studied applied physics at the University of Twente. During his studies he worked at the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) and graduated at the Dutch National Institute for Nuclear- and High Energy Physics (NIKHEF).

      He gained his PhD degree at the Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics (AMOLF), where he performed experimental and theoretical research using time-resolved spectroscopy. At V.O. he works for well-known knowledge centers and multinationals as well as local tech starters.
