Brief Curriculum Vitae

Jan Theunis (Agricultural Engineer, University of Leuven, Belgium, 1988) started working at VITO in 1999 after 10 years in development co–operation. From 1999 to 2004 he was researcher in the (former) unit of Integrated Environmental Studies. From 2004 to 2008 he headed the Air Quality Measurements team which is part of the Environmental Risk and Health Unit. He is now in charge of the strategic research program on Sensor Networks and Mobile Sensing for air quality. In the past twenty years the group has built up extensive field experience and unique lab test facilities to test and validate measurement equipment and methods, and to carry out customer–oriented air quality research. In recent years a lot of attention goes to urban air quality. Measurement strategies are adapted to the complex urban environment with focus on traffic–related pollutants such as ultrafine particles and black carbon. The research program is developing novel air quality monitoring strategies based on low–cost
