About Me

I have a PhD degree from TU Berlin in Mathematics. My area is discrete optimization, specifically design and analysis of algorithms, algorithmic game theory, theory of scheduling. If you look for my personal website, you find that link also under the tab Contact.


Engineering & Materials Science
Linear Programming
Congestion Games
Machine Scheduling
Performance Guarantee
Price Of Anarchy
Stochastic Scheduling


My research is on the design and analysis of algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems such as scheduling, resource allocation or network routing problems. Part of my research in on optimization under uncertainty. In situations of conflict and multiple economic agents, I also analyze the quality of equilibria, as well as the design and analysis of mechanisms. The leading motive of my research is provable performance guarantees, and worst or average case analysis.

I also work as editor for Operations Research Letters, Discrete Optimization, and the Journal of Scheduling.

I teach courses in the BSc programmes Technical Mathematics and Technical Computer Science, the MSC program in Applied Mathematics, the Dutch Mastermath and LNMB programmes, as well as one course in the MSc program on Civil Engineering. I am also Module coordinator for the module Discrete Structures and Efficient Algorithms.

Courses Academic Year  2022/2023

Courses in the current academic year are added at the moment they are finalised in the Osiris system. Therefore it is possible that the list is not yet complete for the whole academic year.

In the press

In 2015 I've written a so-called summer lecture for the NRC.next on research in Game Theory and its relation to traffic: Waarom wiskunde? Omdat je het spel strategisch wilt spelen

In 2015, my MSc student Loes Knoben received media attention for her work on the S-Bahn challenge in Berlin with the Konrad-Zuse Zentrum (ZIB) Berlin. Next to an interview in the Coen&Sander show, that appeared in the Berliner Morgenpost, Süddeutsche Zeitung, and the Volkskrant

Another of my MSc students, Femia van Stiphout, went to the UPC Barcelona for her internship in 2015, to work on firefighter problems.

And yet another MSc student, Dorien Meijer-Cluwen, has worked in her MSc thesis of 2015 on a dynamic assignment of lectures to lecture rooms.
