Assistant Professor

About Me

Oskar was born and grew up in Emmen, Drenthe.  He moved for his studies to Enschede and received a BSc. in Civil Engineering from the University of Twente in 2013. 

He completed his MSc. in Civil Engineering & Management (Cum laude) and MSc. in Applied Mathematics in 2016 with the thesis called “The Boundedly Rational User Equilibrium: A Parametric Optimization Approach”.

After his graduation, Oskar worked as a researcher at CTS. Since 2017, Oskar has been working as a PhD-researcher at CTS and BMS-IEBIS on travel time predictions for logistics service providers.
