Professor/entrepreneurspecialized in Operations Management and Business Analytics
I'm a mathematics professor at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I teach Business Analytics and Optimization to different groups of students. My research is centered around the use of Optimization and Machine Learning to Service Operations, especially call centers, health care and revenue management.
Next to my academic work I co-founded CCmath, a call center workforce optimization company. Currently I'm very busy with calculations for the LCPS, the Dutch center for distributing COVID-19 patients. I'm also a founder of Adscience, which focuses on internet advertisement optimization, and I work for PICA, the VU University/VU medical center knowledge center on health care logistics.
Since 2011 we develop our research collaborations with industry through ACBA, the Amsterdam Center for Business Analytics, together with the School of Business and Economics and CWI.
On a personal note: I'm a (skitouring-)instructor at the French and Dutch alpine clubs, and I did the long-distance triathlon in less than 12 hours.
