Wiel Kleeven did his PhD study at the Eindhoven University of Technology (EUT) on the theory of accelerated orbits, including space charge issues in cyclotrons. He then moved to TRIUMF for a postdoc position before returning to EUT, where he was also appointed post-doc researcher.
Since then, Wiel Kleeven is now for more than 20 years involved in the R&D activities of IBA. He developed in-house accelerator computing capabilities and participated in every major design, commissioning and improvements of medical and industrial accelerators in IBA’s portfolio.
He is now still working as senior accelerator Physicist and honorary fellow at IBA, which allows him to also pursue collaborations and research of broader interests.
