After an MEng degree in 1986 from the University of Twente in the Netherlands, he obtained his Ph.D. summa cum laude there in 1990. After a short stint at Akzo, he returned to the academia. Two 2002 paradigm-shifting articles show colloidal Ln3+-based nanoparticles with near-infrared luminescence. In 2002 he accepted a Tier II Canada Research Chair at the University of Victoria, renewed in 2007. Current research is on nanoparticles ranging from Ln3+-doped, semiconductor, and (super)paramagnetic.
