Traffic Network Management: Road traffic management is applied worldwide in order to reduce the adverse effects of road traffic. The measures applied, such as traffic signals and ramp metering, are still mostly local, whereas the problems they address, most notably the congestion problem, are network related. Therefore, currently, the big challenge in road traffic management is to manage traffic at the network level, and not just purely locally.

With my background as analyst of the Dutch police, I’m interested in the decision-making within criminal investigations. The research focuses on the prioritizing of persons of interest and scenarios in major criminal investigations. The exponential technological development in the last decades has led to a range of new pieces of evidence and a world of limitless access to data. Little is known about the influence of these developments on the process of decision-making within criminal investigations. The interpretation and weighing of evidence, ranging from the classic eye witness testimony to the new highly advanced digital or forensic evidence and the translation to the managing of the investigation onto the right person of interest or scenario is becoming extremely complex. The objective of the research is to design a model that supports the prioritizing of persons of interest and scenarios in criminal investigations.

Having been working for one of the key international organizations for nine years as international law and protection officer, I analyze the conduct of war and peace building efforts in the context of refugee law, human rights and humanitarian law. I assess the multicultural, multinational and multi organizational complex systems involved within decision making mechanisms of the United Nations, EU and the NATO, and their exercise in the field in the context of the humanitarian intervention, peace building and humanitarian assistance.
With my PHD research, I aim to develop an efficient and transparent information data management system through participatory assessments, community based approach and input of all international and national actors involved in humanitarian intervention, peace building and stability in order to ensure protection of civilians; particularly children who are among the most vulnerable..

My current research interest focuses on complex systems and system of systems (sos), including modeling and optimization of sos architecting. I am interested in how to design the complex systems or sos and how to optimize the designed proposal, including the optimization design of sos program and the study of the technical specifications of short boards for sos by considering the application of resources in the participatory systems.

My research focuses on providing flexible computer-mediated support in collaborative problem-solving processes. The goal of my research is to identify and define profiles of interaction support in such processes and implement them as means of flexibility in groupware. I currently use collaborative diagnosis processes in preventive maintenance as a reference scenario. I am currently assigned in the Smart Vortex project.

With Dr. Warnier and Dr. Huang, we participate together in the EU project CIVIS and my visit to TU Delft is part of that collaboration. CIVIS explores possibilities for a sustainable smart energy system, as a socio-technical system. In particular, we ask what forms of innovation and efficiency can ICT-enabled energy communities bring in this socio-technical system? My doctoral thesis at Aalto University, Finland, focuses on social computing and different applications of data analytics, such as to human mobility, social networks and smart energy systems.

My research is focused on participatory humanitarian supply chains (HSC). In particular, it is intended to discuss different roles people and organizations can take before, during, and after natural and sudden-onset disasters, and how people’s different roles as customer, partner and citizen have shaped the strategy and structure of HSCs from a top-down, centralized, internally integrated one to a more bottom-up, decentralized, and externally integrated over time. I’m also interested in designing a methodology and framework to help organizations, involved in disaster management, to think and act collectively.
