René 's Curriculum Vitae
René de Gelder was born in Wissenkerke (Zeeland, The Netherlands) on the 21st of June 1965.
In 1986 he graduated from his pre-university education (Atheneum-B) at the "Fioretti-College" in Lisse (Zuid-Holland, The Netherlands).
He studied chemistry at the University of Leyden, the Netherlands
where he got his Masters in May 1988.
After his studies he worked for four years as a PhD-student in the field of
Crystallography at the Department of Structural Chemistry of the University
of Leyden under supervision of Prof.dr. H. Schenk. His PhD-research involved
the ab initio solution of the phase problem in single-crystal X-ray diffraction
for difficult small and medium sized compounds. He received his PhD in december
After his PhD he worked for two years as a postdoc at the University of
Nijmegen where he did research on the development of methods to solve the
phase problem for incommensurately modulated structures. From 1995 on he is
working as a lecturer in Chemical Crystallography at the University of Nijmegen.
