Wouter van Reeven
European Space Astronomy Centre (ESAC)
Wouter van Reeven is a software engineer at ESAC since August 2011. His main objective is to work on IDT, but in the past months he has also worked on IDTFLDB and the DPCE Testbed. Wouter studied astronomy in Leiden, the Netherlands, but decided not to pursue a career in astronomy. Having worked as a software engineer in the Netherlands for nearly ten years, he decided to try and combine being a software engineer and his great love for astronomy whilst visiting a friend at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore. Upon returning home he found a job opening at ESAC for which he applied. The rest is history.
Apart from being a very active amateur astronomer, Wouter has a keen interest in music, both for listening and playing the guitar and singing.
