Gijsbertus de With is full professor in materials science. He graduated from Utrecht State University and received his PhD in 1977 from the University of Twente on the 'Structure and charge distribution of molecular crystals'. In the same year he joined Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven. In 1985 he was appointed part-time professor and in 1995 he became full professor at the Eindhoven University of Technology. His research interests include the structure, interfacial phenomena as well as the chemical and thermomechanical behaviour of multi-phase materials. Since 2006 he is also chairman of the Soft Matter CryoTEM Research Unit. He has (co)-authored more than 250 research papers and holds about 15 patents. Throughout he has cooperated with other researchers, both from academia and industry. He is a member of the Advisory board of the J. Eur. Ceram. Soc., co-organised the first Eur. Ceram. Soc. Conference and co-organised the Coatings Science International conferences from 2004 to 2014. In 2006 his two-volume monograph Structure, Deformation, and Integrity of Materials was published, followed by a monograph on Liquid-state Physical Chemistry in 2013.
