Master Student


Victor Brouwers obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Applied Physics at the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2020 (Cum Laude), with a thesis on comparing algorithmic and machine learning approaches to feature recognition in STM images. During his Bachelor study, he spent a summer at Chengdu University in China to study Chinese culture and political history while doing a consultancy project for PwC.

During the first year of his Master’s, he founded a student team HART focused on human augmentation to expand the human senses.

Victor joined our group in September 2021 for this master graduation project on on-the-fly machine learning force fields for halide perovskites. For his project, he collaborated closely with Mike, and defended his thesis with a grade of 9.5, earning cum laude for his master!

Since early 2023, after his graduation, Victor works as a Consultant at McKinsey Digital.
