Assistant Professor

About Me

Ellen-Wien Augustijn is specialized in Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) and, in particular technical developments within the domain of ABM, like steering agent behaviour via Machine Learning.


Keywords in the research interest of Ellen-Wien Augustijn are Agent-based Modeling (ABM), Geocomputation and disease modeling.

Over the years Ellen-Wien developed a range of Agent-based simulation models for a variety of applications, ranging from evacuation, growth of informal settlements to disease diffusion. Ellen-Wien is specialized in spatial ABMs in which both the geo-environment and human behavior are important factors. Currently her research focuses on behavior change and the implementation of artificial intelligence in ABMs.

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.

Courses Academic Year  2021/2022


Currently Ellen-Wien Augustijn is involved in the ReAShore project, working on modeling the use and management of Nature based Solutions for coastal landscapes. Ellen-Wien is also a project member of the Kappa project, in which pollen allergies are modelled.
