My name is Brent Huisman, working as a PhD in particle therapy. I've got a master's degree in particle physics, and within my master's thesis I worked on proton therapy and imaging, a new method to treat cancer. Currently, I am working as a PhD student on systems that will provide online control for such treatments.

As a student representative and in the board of a study association, I learned what a good team can accomplish. I've thoroughly enjoyed my time as treasurer with a annual turnover of 100k€+, secretary of an event with the top strategy consultants in the world and co-organizing a symposium featuring a Nobel prize winner.

I like life, the universe and everything. The workings of our universe, our globe and its thin top layer with us humans in it: wow! Besides hiking, reading, cooking and bothering others, I like to spend time on computer hardware, software (Python) and design (HTML/CSS). Of particular interest to me are free software and free information. This website serves as a sandbox and public display of such endeavours.
