Assistant Professor

About Me

Hil Meijer is an assistant professor (UD) in the group Applied Analysis at the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente. 
His research interests are in applied dynamical systems theory. He is a co-developer of MatCont, a leading bifurcation analysis toolbox, for which he has contributed new numerical algorithms as well as given courses and tutorials on its use. This toolbox is also used to explore computational models for clinical neuroscience aiming at improved diagnostics. He collaborates with several clinical centers to analyse real clinical data. Current projects focus on neurostimulation for improved stimulation protocols in epilepsy surgery (with UMC Utrecht) and Parkinson's disease (Maastricht).

Previous projects considered sensory processes, in particular somatosensation in relation to pain, and neuromodulation with deep brain stimulation working closely with the Biomedical Signals and Systems group at the UT on these topics for theory and experiments. 

Teaching involves Calculus, Linear Algebra, Nonlinear Dynamics, Matlab, and Numerical Methods for Biomedical Engineering and Applied Mathematics.
