R.H. Bemthuis MSc (Rob)


About Me

Rob Bemthuis is a PhD candidate in the Pervasive Systems Research Group at the University of Twente. He holds a master's degree and a bachelor's degree in Industrial Engineering and Management from the same university, with a specialization in production and logistics management. Rob's research is part of the Big Data for Resilient Logistics (DATAREL) project, which aims to enhance logistic knowledge through innovative Internet of Things (IoT) and Big Data solutions for detecting emerging behaviors. Rob was a visiting scholar in the University of Southern Denmark and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. Currently, he is coordinating and researching within a sustainable construction logistics project. 

In general, Rob's research interests involve multi-agent systems (MAS), simulation of logistic processes, and machine learning.

Besides his research activities, Rob is an active volunteer in the international community of the University of Twente and Enschede. He served as Treasurer of the PhD Network of the University of Twente (P-NUT) in 2019-2020, held a general board member position in 2020-2021, and was elected Treasurer and Vice-President in 2021-2022. He also chaired the organizing committees of the PhD Day 2019, PhD & PDEng Day 2020, and PhD & PDEng Day 2021 at the University of Twente. Additionally, he participates in various national and regional associations and projects.
