Education Director Bart J. Kooi Bart J. Kooi

The current Education Director of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials is Bart J. Kooi. He was appointed by the Faculty Board, effective 2020-09-01.

Bart J. Kooi studied Materials Science at Delft University of Technology and received his PhD degree with Prof. Eric Mittemeijer in 1995 with a thesis entitled “Iron-Nitrogen Phases: Thermodynamics, Long-Range Order and Oxidation Behaviour”. Then he moved to the University of Groningen to work (since 1997) as an assistant and associate professor in the research group of Materials Science headed by Prof. De Hosson with a main focus on electron microscopy e.g. of metal-oxide interfaces. In 2001 he started research on phase-change materials for memory applications which developed a broader interest in chalcogenide materials. In 2009 he established his own research group “Nanostructured Materials and Interfaces” within the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials. He has published more than 200 articles in peer-reviewed journals with nanostructure-property relations as an overarching theme.
