About meHey, you browsed to the personal website of Daniël Abrahams. Actually, this is a very uninteresting website. It shows a few hobby projects of me, I've put my diving logbook online, I've put some travel pictures on it and some info about my home theater. Only boring stuff.
If you're still reading, you'll find some information about me. I was born in 1980 in The Netherlands. After high school I went to the University of Technology in Delft for studying Applied Physics. In 2008 I have finished my Masters degree in Applied Physics after which I earned my MSc (Ir. in dutch) title.
My graduation project for my Applied Physics was to refine a model for the growth rate of the the Atmospheric Boundary Layer (ABL). This 1 year project was highly experimental, which included numerical modelling as well as working with high-power laser systems and refined optics.
Besides physics, I have a lot of other interests. To name a few: electronics, computers, movies, politics, traveling, hanging out with friends and playing lot of boardgames (Kolonisten van Catan is my favourite). Quite recently, a few sports were added to this list, like scuba diving, running, sailing and karate.
During high school and especially during university, I have been very active in many committees from the student society for Applied Physics (VvTP), for het Delftsch Studenten Corps (DSC) and for the JOVD (a political liberal youth movement) (JOVD).
During my high-school and student years I have been working a lot. I have been repairing electronic appliances, selling and repairing computers, sales system programming, website development and student assistant at the university, which included working as a teacher for groups of students.
Not very long ago I was never interested in sports. But this changed a few years ago. Now I love sailing and I'm addicted to scubadiving. Recently, I've added running and karate to this list. I never thought it was possible for me to achieve this and actually like it, but it seems that I really DO like it now and have to be careful not to overstress my body.
