Biography

Ludo was raised in Deurne, in the province Noord-Brabant in the south of the Netherlands. After finishing high-school in 1990, he went to Technical University Delft for a degree in Chemical Engineering, where he left after finishing his propadeuse in 1992. He moved to Tiburg for a teacher training in Chemistry at the Hogeschool Katholieke Leergangen Tilburg. He graduated there in 1995, having also spent 5 months working at New York University (New York, USA) in the research lab of Assis. Prof. Stacey F. Bent (now at Stanford University). While in New York, he got interested in continuing his education in the USA. He moved to the Boston area in August of 1995 for a Ph.D. program at Tufts University (Massachusetts, USA). He graduated with a Ph.D. in chemistry from the gas-surface dynamics group of Assoc. Prof. Arthur L. Utz in August 2000. 

He moved back to the Netherlands to start a post-doctoral position in the research group of Prof. dr. Aart W. Kleyn, now the group of Prof.dr. Marc Koper.
