Ewoud Vissers was born in Hoorn, the Netherlands, in 1995. In 2018 he received his Master in Electrical Engineering from the University of Twente, with a specialization in Integrated Optical Systems. Afterwards he worked on his PhD about hybrid integrated mode-locked lasers using SiN external cavities with professor Bart Kuyken. Currently, he works in a support position, primarily for streamlining optical chip design within the group.
