      I am a scientist at Delft University of Technology. I solve my problems using a MacGyver attitude. I build measurement devices using scavanged parts from consumer-electronics. I connect existing online data sources to answer relevant scientific questions. I encourage my students to learn by discovering, building and doing.

      I am a restless jack of all trades that likes to organize  and run events. I am a public speaker on science and technology. I write a monthly column in the Dutch national newspaper "De Volkskrant". I host workshops for audiences ranging from festival-goers to primary school kids. My workshops show, hands-on, that technology is fun and that technology is for everyone, not only for beta-nerds. I am, most of all, endlessly curious. 

      On this website I post blogs and news related to my work. If I do not own my own work, I will provide a link to it. Science related blogs on this site are aimed at a general audience. For my scientific publications, please follow me on researchgate or look at my TU Delft page.

      If you want to book me for a lecture, public event or workshop, please email me at rolf@rolfhut.nl or contact me on twitter: @rolfhut
