Dr Henk Marquering obtained a MSc degree in geophysics from the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands, in 1991. From the same university he obtained a PhD degree after a theoretical seismology study on the coupling of surface wave modes for describing propagation of body waves in lateral heterogeneous media.
A postdoc was performed in Princeton University, NJ, USA where he continued working on the 3D wave form kernels, which has resulted in the infamous Banana Doughnut kernels.
