Business Development
ASML Veldhoven

Hi all, my name is Koen Maaskant, welcome to my website. Currently I work for ASML, a company which makes machines that are used to manufacture chips. As part of the Corporate Strategy and Marketing department, I work for new business development, responsible for identifying and developing new innovative high tech business opportunities for ASML. Prior to this position, I worked for ASML as a design engineer for the extreme ultra violet (EUV) lithography system and were involved in the performance and integration of imaging design. I studied physics & astronomy at the University of Amsterdam. I explored student life, by rowing at student society Skoll, working in the planetarium of the Amsterdam zoo Artis, and other typical activities. After an internship at the Amsterdam Medical Center, and some interesting psychology and epistemological philosophy courses, I wanted to continue in astrophysics. I was fortunate to carry out my master research with dr. L.B.F.M. Waters, with whom I studied stellar evolution in high mass star forming regions. In 2010, I started my PhD, working with dr. A.G.G.M. Tielens at Leiden Observatory, studying the evolution of protoplanetary disks of Herbig stars. I focussed on comparing data from telescopes with computational models, in order to understand the formation of young stars and exoplanets. (2017-01-16)
