Welcome at my personal webpage...
Since the first of December, 2009, I am employed as a Ph.D-student at the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) at TU Delft.
Previously I was enrolled in the M.Sc. program in Econometrics and Operations Research at
Maastricht University and I obtained a B.Sc. (first in class, summa cum laude) at the liberal arts college University College Maastricht, where I mainly focused on applied mathematics. During my B.Sc. I
also spent a semester at Babson College, MA, U.S.A. (awarded for outstanding scholarship, Dean's list).
Research Projects and Interests
With Prof.dr.ir. Bart De Schutter and Prof.dr.ir. Hans Hellendoorn as my advisors, I am currently looking into adopting game-theoretic elements in the modeling of communication and interaction between controllers on different levels within the control of large-scale systems.
One of the major challenges in the control of large-scale intelligent infrastructures such as road traffic networks is to find an efficient multi-level control scheme in which decisions by several controllers on different, mutually interacting control layers are taken into account.
A theory that seems to be particularly applicable to tackle these problems is the theory of reverse Stackelberg games, in which a leader-player acts first by announcing her strategy as a mapping of the follower's decision space into her own decision space, thereby taking the response of the follower into account.

You can visit me in room 8C-3-23 in the section of the Delft
Center for Systems and Control in the 3mE building:
In my spare time, I like to play the harp (one year I was a student of
Masumi Nagasawa at the Conservatorium Maastricht; before that of Vera Kool), do yoga or go running
outside, read, etc. ...
