Geertjan Huiskamp received his Msc. degree in experimental physics in 1985 from the university of Nijmegen, the Netherlands. His masters' thesis concerned the developement of MRI  based geometrical computer models for volume conductor modeling.

From 1985 till 1988 he worked at the department of medical physics and biophysics of the university of Nijmgen on a PhD project on the inverse problem in electrocardiology. In 1989 he received his PhD on a thesis titled “noninvase detemination of human ventricular activation.”

From 1989 till 1993 he worked as a post-doctoral fellow on a grant from the Dutch Heart Foundation on further developent and validation of methods for noninvase cardiac electrical imaging, both at the university of Nijmegen and at the department of radiological sciences, university of California at Irvine. 

From 1993 till 1996 he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the university of Nijmegen on a grant from the Netherlands organization for scientific research (NWO) on the developement of  a large scale 3D membrane equations based computer model  for the simultion of  depolarization in the anisotropic heart.

During the period 1985 - 1996 he contributed to  the teaching of physics and system theory for the medical school undergraduate program.

In 1996 he switched to the department of clinical neurophysiology of the university medical center in Utrecht, the Netherlands. From 1996 till 2000 he worked as a postdoctoral fellow on MEG and EEG source localization for the presurgical evaluation in epilepy surgery, part of an NWO granted study on MEG and epilepsy. Since 2000 he has been staff physicist at the department of clinical neurophysiology at the university medical center Utrecht.
