I am a PhD candidate at the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC).  I received my bachelors degree in Human Kinetic Technology (BEng) from The Hague University of Applied Sciences and my masters degree in Systems and Control (MSc) from TU Delft.


My research is part of the Explorail research program, which aims to make the rail infrastructure more resistant to failures. Within this project, my focus is on fault prediction for railway assets (e.g., track circuits and switches) based on actual monitoring data. Currently, a lot of data are measured, but most of them are still not used to determine system health. The goals of my research are to find relationships between monitoring data and system health and to develop methods that use this information to predict (future) system health. At the end, the research results should contribute to an improved maintenance planning such that costs and downtime of the rail infrastructure are minimized.
