About me

Richard van den Doel was born and raised in the province of Zeeland. This is another reason why he likes his work at UCR so much! He got his M.Sc. degree in Applied Physics from Delft University of Technology in 1997. He got his Ph.D. degree in 2002 from the same university. His Ph.D. focused on the monitoring of dynamic processes in microarrays using quantitative microscopic techniques. He continued to work in the same research group as a PostDoc from 2002 to 2004. This project involved a collaboration with the Unilever Research Laboratory in Vlaardingen, the Netherlands. In 2004, he started working at UCR as lecturer in Mathematics and Physics and as a tutor. In 2012, he dropped his tutor task and became Senior Tutor. In that capacity, he managed the tutoring system. Currently he is a member of the Board of Examiners. Over the years he has supervised many undergraduate research projects. His research interests are in the field of quantum mechanics, computer vision and image processing, dynamic systems and Bayesian statistics​.
