The Team

Dirk van Meer


I am a 19-year-old, third-year, Chemical Engineering student, who is mostly interested in process engineering. However, I also have a growing love for the organic side of chemistry. When I am not busy with my study or Team CORE, I can be found in my church community where I provide catecheses to children from one to six years old. I like to think about technical and non-technical problems and that’s how I came up with this student team. I play the role of team captain in our team, but I am also keeping myself busy with the more technical challenges we face.

Niels Bongers

I am a 22-year old, third-year Chemical Engineering student. My main interests focus on process engineering and organic chemistry. Aside from studying, I enjoy programming in Python, reading and working on personal projects related to engineering. My role in the team is related to the chemical side, as well as computer models.

Walter Schaap

I am 19 years old and in my second year of the Bachelor Applied Physics. In my spare time, I like to play sports, socialize and to teach myself various skills. I am also interested a bit in philosophy and I am conscious of the environment and its lack of appreciation. With our team, I would like to be a leading factor in helping the world getting back in touch with nature. I will be focusing on doing research into some unknown subjects regarding our project as well as assisting in the modeling part.


Giel van Huisseling

I am a 20-year old, third-year Chemical Engineering student. My main tasks within Team CORE involve (an)organic chemistry and USE (User, Society, Enterprise) analyses. My spare time usually involves some form of football, whether it be outdoors or via news, videos or games. Within Team CORE, I will mainly be conducting experiments and writing analysis reports.


Martijn Scheve

I am a 20-year-old Industrial Engineering student who is interested in data analytics and its applications in business. In my spare time I like to socialize, learn about anything and play some games. Within this team I will be looking at the business side of things while taking sustainability and the environment into consideration.


Yris van Dam

I am a 20-year-old Chemical Engineering student. I am interested in the main applications of organic and inorganic chemistry in our daily life. I like to go sailing, windsurfing or do anything else to stay active in my spare time. Within the team, I will fulfill the role of HR manager and I will take care of promotion.

Guus Röben


I am a 21 year old student at the faculty of Industrial Design. You can describe me as a calm, down-to-earth guy who likes to connect with people. Because of my outgoing nature, I am sort of a social glue to the group. I am actively involved in meetings and can bring new ideas to the table. I like to explore different possibilities while also trying to make sense of the process, providing a logical eye to the team. During my studies at the Eindhoven University of Technology, my interest and knowledge in the area of marketing have grown. Within CORE, I would like to put my theoretical knowledge into practice, further developing my skill set and getting acquainted in a real-world, professional environment. I will be joining the promotional team and manage external contacts for the upcoming academic year.

Marisol Calderon


I am 19 and I’m a second-year Chemical-engineering student. I decided to start this career because I have a passion for chemistry, but most importantly, my dream is to help solve one of the biggest issues in our planet, that is, the problem of waste and environmental pollution. Apart from chemistry, my passion is artistic expression and enjoying nature amuch as possible. As a hobby, I also enjoy dancing and bouldering. I look forward to having a positive contribute to save the planet through team CORE!


Natalia Violari

My name is Natalia Violari and I’m studying Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. I love learning new things especially when it comes to science, solving problems and also doing hands on tasks. In the future, the aim is to study Material science as a Master’s degree. In my free time I like to dance, climb and explore the nature.

Aaryana Kunte

I am a 19 year old, second-year Chemical Engineering student with an interest in polymer chemistry and nanomaterials.

Thijs Beurskens


My name is Thijs Beurskens and I am 21 years old. Last year I finished a combined bachelor Applied Mathematics and Software Science at the TU/e and next year I will be starting my masters in Mathematics. I would describe myself as eager to learn and quite easy going. I like to do sports  – running, cycling and football in particular – and to meet friends. In the future (and starting this year) I would like to work on environmental developments.

Julian Martens


I am a 20-year-old, third-year, Industrial Engineering student, interested in sustainable developments. Team Core is a place to apply the theories I learned about strategy, team development and other business processes while taking the important aspect of the earth’s well-being in consideration. In my spare time, I like to socialize with friends and play sports.
