I have been living in Leiden since 1961, and here since 1973:
I have worked at Leiden University, Leiden Institute of Chemistry, Gorlaeus Laboraties, where I currently am Emeritus Professor of Chemistry.
After retirement I have been active in consultancy, IUPAC

A major editor activity with Elsevier is listed here.
One of my scientific interests deals with the
periodic table of chemical elements. Since my PhD I have published
scientific papers dealing with 74 (of the 90 natural occurring)
chemical elements, marked orange in the Table below. Yellow elements I
did not study. Blue-colored elements are the radioactive elements I
did not study.
