Aleida Braaksma received her M.Sc. degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Twente (UT) in 2010. Her master thesis project, for which she received multiple thesis awards, marked the start of her career in healthcare operations research. In 2015, she received the Ph.D. degree for the dissertation ‘Timely and Efficient planning of TReatments through Intelligent Scheduling’. She performed her Ph.D. project at CHOIR (Center for Healthcare Operations Improvement and Research, UT) and the Academic Medical Center (AMC) Amsterdam. Subsequently, Aleida spent two years working as a postdoctoral fellow in healthcare operations research at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston, United States. Currently, she is an assistant professor at the Stochastic Operations Research group of the UT and within CHOIR. Her research interests are in planning and scheduling in healthcare with a specific focus on decision making under uncertainty.
