Rob van Gils (born 1984) received the M.Sc. (2008) and PhD degree (2012) in Mechanical Engineering from Eindhoven University of Technology. For his PhD thesis, he applied feedback stabilization on an infinite-dimensional thermo-dynamical model for pool-boiling systems, for application in thermal management schemes.
After his PhD he started as thermal technologist at Philips Innovation Services. Since January 2016, Van Gils is competence leader thermal & flow, carrying responsibility for the maintenance and advancement of the competence within Pins. His main activities comprise thermal & flow architecture, design, modelling and experimental validation of equipment ranging from consumer electronics to larger mechatronic modules/systems.
