Hans-Elias de Bree (11-01-1969) studied Electrical Engineering at the University of Twente, Enschede, the Netherlands.
In 1995, he obtained his Master's degree on low noise electronics after his invention of the Microflown, a very sensitive MEMS based flow sensor.
In 1997 he received his Ph.D. on the further scientific exploration of the Microflown.
Afterwards, he obtained two post-doc grants from STW (Dutch Scientific Technology Foundation) to continue his work.
In 1998, he co-founded Microflown Technologies (www.microflown.com) where he holds the position of Director R&D.
In 2005, Hans-Elias was appointed as a professor on Vehicle Acoustics at the HAN University, an Engineering college, in Arnhem.
Field of interest:
Clean room/ MEMS sensor design
Near field sound source localization
Far field sound source localization
In situ impedance measurements
Representative of Microflown Technologies in EU FP 7 projects FLOCON and TEENI.
Work package leader Environmentally Friendly Trajectories on behalf of the IGOR consortium in the Clean Sky Green Rotorcraft.
