About me

My name is Marien van Westen.
I am a lecturer at the Hanze University of Applied Science in Groningen (the Netherlands).
Subjects I teach are: physics, programming in Delphi and Labview, telecommunication and RF-technology. I am also involved in curriculum development.
Besides that I am a radio amateur (callsign PA0MVW), interested in computer technology, programming (mainly Delphi and Lazarus), nature photography, astronomy and microscopy.
I have written some programs in a visual C dialect called Xforms for the Linux platform, so if you are interested take a look there.
As a hobby I do research on the distribution of Desmids (very beautiful microscopical green algae) in the province of Drenthe.

I wrote software for educational purposes and for myself. Then I found out that fellow lecturers and others were interested in this software, so I decided to make it available for all interested people.
