A post-coronavirus society
Piet Van Mieghem usually researches all kinds of complex networks, like the internet or the brain. He now uses his knowledge as a weapon against COVID-19 and he is working on a exit-strategy.
A bit of math to constrain epidemics
Most people like to keep both mathematics and epidemics at a distance. But a little bit of the former can do wonders in limiting the latter. Supervised by professor Kees Vuik, two high school students modelled a recent outbreak of cholera in Ghana. He also has a bachelor student investigating the new corona virus.
We\Visit: combatting loneliness with video-calling
Visiting a loved one who’s critically ill: normally that’s possible, but due to the coronavirus, visiting ICUs is no longer permitted. The result is a lonely fight behind closed doors. In an attempt to combat the loneliness, researchers at Delft University of Technology have come up with We\Visit: a tool that facilitates video-calling by appointment. And it was developed at lightning speed after the Reinier de Graaf hospital sounded the alarm.
A fresh perspective on potato growth
Neil Budko develops numerical methods for the analysis of carefully controlled potato growth experiments.
Using mathematics to explain why the River Ems is silting up
Why are the River Ems and the Dollard inlet so turbid that they barely harbour any life? Mathematician Henk Schuttelaars (TU Delft) is working on new models to improve our understanding of this puzzling river and find solutions to the problems involved.
Solar cells available at bargain prices, but still the revolution stagnates
The energy transition is an extremely complex challenge for our society.
Improving the effectiveness of speech recognition
How can you ensure that a computer understands exactly what someone is saying even if they cannot speak the language perfectly? In her quest to make this possible, Odette Scharenborg (Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Studies) is researching automatic speech recognition.
Algorithms unravel cellular dynamics, and what it means for targeted therapy
Modern technology allows us to monitor the activity of tens of thousands of genes in cells.
How not to waste energy on 5G
Earl McCune is geared up to break a few long-held believes in the field of wireless communication
Developing a digital twin for the electricity grid
Peter Palensky is working on a “digital twin” to make it possible to study the electricity grid.
Tackling tumours using mathematics
Marleen Keijzer and Sebastiaan Breedveld discuss the role mathematics can play in an ever changing field of radiotherapy.
A glimpse into the universe with superconducting electronics
Jochem Baselmans is looking for answers to the most relevant questions in our universe.
