About Me

My research interests centre on stochastic processes and stochastic operations research. I focus on the performance of stochastic processing networks with layered architectures with typical application domains on energy and manufacturing networks. In addition, I have worked on perturbation analysis for heavy-tailed risk models, Lévy processes, large deviations for non-monotone stochastic recursions, and proportional fairness in heavy traffic for bandwidth-sharing networks. 

Next to my research, I am active in promoting gender diversity in mathematics in the Dutch academia through my roles as the president of the association of women mathematicians in the Netherlands, EWM-NL and as the representative of the Committee for Women in Mathematics of the International Mathematical Union in the Netherlands.
