Ben De Pauw was born in Oostende, Belgium in 1988. He received a masters degree in physics in 2011 from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. In that same year he started a Ph.D. in collaboration with the Departement of Applied Physics (TONA/B-Phot), the Departement of Mechanical Engineering (MECH/Avrg) and the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK•CEN) in the field of vibration analysis of nuclear fuel pins using optical fibre sensors. The main goal of this research is to experimentally model, analyze and characterize vibrations of the fuel-pin assembly induced by the flow of the cooling liquid in nuclear reactors. The aim is to apply the results to the GEN IV ADS reactor MYRRHA of the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK•CEN). His main research interests are situated in the field of optical fibre sensors, experimental modal analysis and signal processing. Up
