Johann Hurink is a professor at the department of Applied Mathematics. Until last year he also served as the Director of the Dutch Network on the Mathematics of Operations Research (LNMB). His current research is focused on the application of optimization techniques and scheduling models to problems from decentralized energy management, logistics, and healthcare. The UT scientist will take over his new role at 4TU.AMI from Kees Vuik, professor at Delft University of Technology.
4TU Applied Mathematics Institute (AMI) is a joint initiative by the four individual mathematics departments of the universities of Delft, Eindhoven, Twente and Wageningen. AMI joins forces in research teams to develop new or improved methods to meet the challenges of current and new problems in varying areas. The institute currently focuses on five research areas: Big Data, Energy, Health, Resilience and Water. It also promotes collaborations between the universities with regard to (applied) mathematics education.
