Jan van der Kruk
Jan van der Kruk received an M.S. (1995) in electrical engineering and a Ph.D. (2001) in geophysics from Delft University of Technology. From 2001 to 2008, he was a lecturer and senior researcher with the Applied and Environmental Geophysics Group at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Since 2008, he has been a professor at RWTH Aachen University, Germany, and is a research group leader with the Research Center Jülich, Germany. Recent work has focused on the inversion of dispersive GPR waves propagating in surface waveguides, GPR full-waveform inversion techniques, and multiconfiguration inversion of electromagnetic induction data. He received the Best Paper Award (2000) from the Department of Applied Earth Sciences, Delft University of Technology, and a Best Paper in Geophysics Honorable Mention (2006). In 2011, he was general chair of the International Workshop on Advanced GPR, Aachen, Germany. His research interests include the development of imaging and inversion methodologies and their application to solving applied problems.
Jan van der Kruk, Rita Streich, and Alan Green received 2006 Honorable Mention (Geophysics) for their paper Properties of surface waveguides derived from separate and joint inversion of dispersive TE and TM GPR data.
