About Me

Martijn Mes is an associate professor within the department Industrial Engineering and Business Information Systems at the University of Twente (Enschede). He holds a master’s degree in Applied Mathematics (2002) and did his PhD at the School of Management and Governance, University of Twente (2008). After finishing his PhD, Martijn did his postdoc at Princeton University, Department of Operations Research and Financial Engineering, where he did research on the topics of Ranking and Selection (R&S), Bayesian Global Optimization (BGO), and Optimal Learning. In general, Martijn's research involves freight transportation, synchromodal transport, multi-agent systems (MAS), pricing and auctions in freight transport, dynamic vehicle routing problems (VRP & DVRP), ranking and selection problems (R&S), optimal learning, approximate dynamic programming (ADP), simulation optimization, discrete-event simulation, and simulation of logistics and healthcare systems. Martijn participated in various research and implementation projects (national as well as European) on the topics of sustainable logistics, urban logistics, city distribution, healthcare logistics, port logistics, and intermodal and synchromodal transport. Within the program Industrial Engineering and Management, Martijn provides various BSc and MSc courses related to simulation, queueing theory, (stochastic) dynamic programming, Markov chains, mathematical programming, transportation management, and management of technology.
