From left to right: Stefan van den Boogaart, Govert Trouwborst,  Sander Hogewoning & Andre Krause

Sander Hogewoning PhD, director/ researcher  +31 (0)6 142 715 25

Sander is a grower’s son and has virtually been raised in a greenhouse. At Wageningen University he specialized himself in plant responses to light. During his career at university he saw that scientific knowledge often does not find its way to practice. To bridge the gap between science and practice he founded Plant Lighting in 2011.

Govert Trouwborst PhD, researcher +31 (0)6 109 900 94

Govert already worked in horticulture during childhood and that’s how his in interest in plant physiology was raised. At Wageningen University he was trained as a highly skilled photosynthesis researcher. Plant Lighting gratefully applies his knowledge.

Andre Krause MSc, researcher +31 (0)30 7512069

After the biology studies at the University of Düsseldorf with a focus on molecular plant science, Andre finished a masters in Crop Science at the University of Bonn with a major in Sensor Based Production and Technology. With a strong scientific background and much practical research on photosynthesis, he aims to quantify plant growth and put results into modeling approaches.

Stefan van den Boogaart, MSc, researcher +31 (0)6 319 298 91

After a succesful internship at Plant Lighting, Stefan graduated for his MSc study ‘Plant Sciences’ at Wageningen University. Beside his plant physiological background Stefan is also experienced with the applied aspects of greenhouse horticulture:  Previously he acquired a bachelor’s degree at the HAS University of Applied sciences in Den Bosch. Also he has worked for many years at a tomato nursery. This background fits very well in his current function as researcher.
