L.A. Jimenez Roa MSc (Lisandro)

PhD Candidate

About Me

My background is in Civil Engineering with an emphasis on Structural Engineering. My research field of interest is in Predictive & Health Management through data analytics, physics-informed approaches, and machine learning.

Currently, I am working on my Ph.D. at the University of Twente — The Netherlands, hosted by the Formal Methods and Tools (FMT) group and funded by the Dutch National Research Agenda (NWA) under the project PrimaVera (Predictive maintenance for Very effective asset management).

The scope of my Ph.D. project is to explore hybrid learning techniques of prognostic tools to improve understanding and management of complex assets through prognostic metrics.
