MSc Theoretical Physics, 1976
PhD in Theoretical Physics, 1987
Delft Technical University
Anton G. Tijhuis received the M.Sc. degree in theoretical physics from Utrecht University in 1976 and the Ph.D. degree from the Delft University of Technology in 1987 (cum laude). From 1976–1986 and 1986–1993, he has been employed as an assistant and associate professor at the Laboratory of Electromagnetic Research, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Delft University of Technology. In 1993, he was appointed full professor of Electromagnetics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the Eindhoven University of Technology. He has been a visiting scientist at the Universities of Boulder, Colorado (U.S.A.), Granada (Spain) and Tel Aviv (Israel), and with McDonnell Douglas Research Laboratories, St. Louis, Missouri (U.S.A.). Since 1996, he is a consultant with the T.N.O. Physics and Electronics Laboratory, the Hague, the Netherlands. His research interests are the analytical, numerical and physical aspects of the theory of electromagnetic waves. In particular, he is working on efficient techniques for the computational modeling of electromagnetic fields and their application to detection and synthesis problems from several areas of Electrical Engineering. This includes work on the modeling of Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).
