TRAIL Alumnus and TIL director Hans van Lint is appointed to the Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professorship. The aim of the chair is to promote academics who produce excellent work to full professorships at an early stage so that they can develop their academic careers to the fullest possible extent.
Hans van Lint studied Civil Engineering at TU Delft and then worked for the Traffic Management Bureau of the City of Rotterdam, among other things. He returned to TU Delft in 2001. There he gained his PhD for research on the subject of “Reliable freeway travel time prediction” and he has worked in the Transport and Planning department of the CEG faculty since then. He is also the programme director for TIL (Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics).
His research focuses on the connection between traffic data and advanced models and how to apply this to estimating and predicting traffic conditions. He was awarded a Veni grant in 2007 and his work has been published in over 160 articles.
We will publish an interview with Hans next E-Link!
