Meet our team

Rolf Dollevoet studied Mechanical Engineering at TU Eindhoven. He developed an R&D department at Bosch Rexroth Hydraudyne , where he also designed several test machines for hydraulic cylinders and systems. He continued his research work in the railway sector at ProRail. He was awarded his PhD in 2010 at the University of Twente for his rail research on Rolling Contact Fatigue. He is married, with two children. In addition to his family and work, he has a great passion for horses. He and his wife have several racehorses (English thoroughbreds), which they train together.

In addition to his appointment at TU Delft, Dollevoet also works at ProRail as a Railway System Expert. In this role, he is responsible for all the scientific research and innovation for the civil engineering division of ProRail Asset Management. In addition to the many challenges in the railway sector, ProRail itself faces numerous challenging scientific issues relating to safety, reliability, accessibility and sustainability. All of these issues can be tackled by the Railway Engineering group. Dollevoet will do his utmost to ensure that work on these issues comes to TU Delft. In the past, Dollevoet has worked in close cooperation on various projects with other technical universities in the Netherlands in addition to the Railway Engineering group and has excellent contacts with staff, PhD candidates and students.
