In 1994 I obtained my Masters degree in Applied Mathematics at the
From 1994 until 1998 I was a PhD student, again under supervision of Erik van Doorn. The thesis I defended on December 4 was entitled Markovmodulated and Feedback Fluid Queues. (A PDFfile can be found here.)
From 1999 until June 2000 I was a Postdoc at
Eindhoven University of Technology, and I paid a twomonth visit to the
Since June 2000, I am an assistant professor
at the
Applied probability, in particular queueing theory. Part of my research is connected to the work for my PhD thesis, concerning networks of fluid queues. Other interests include tandem queues, feedback mechanisms, asymptotic behavior, and rare event simulation.
