Having graduated from the Eindhoven University of Technology Frits is a structural engineer and a PhD candidate. His thesis simulates the mechanical deterioration processes in concrete sewer pipes subjected to sulfuric acid corrosion. In addition, he has worked on several innovative concepts, such as the dynamic behaviour and performance of adaptive structures and parametric design. The latter combines his profound interest in technology and programming with his creative side and love for architecture. He aims to fully utilize the computational capabilities of the computer as a design tool to simulate and optimize parts of a design. In addition, he plays in several bands and owns a home recording studio to address his creative side. He dreams of designing and building his own house in the future.
