PhD Candidate Xuezhou Wang will obtain his doctorate on Monday 19th June with his thesis Modeling and Design of Brushless Doubly-Fed Induction Machines on the disadvantages and solutions in our current machines for wind turbine applications.
“There is a need for a revolution, rather than an evolution, in Computer Engineering” Said Hamdioui of TU Delft’s Computer Engineering section was recently appointed full professor of Dependable and Emerging Computer Technologies.
“Education is a common ground for all our departments. It’s a connecting factor at our faculty. We need to facilitate the ambition and passion of our lecturers. They are the ones that educate the future generations of engineers”. Geert-Jan Houben (Web Information Systems / Scientific Director Delft Data Science) has been appointed as EEMCS’ new Director of Education.

“Evaluation is my passion. I seek to develop meaningful, trustworthy and inexpensive methods to evaluate Information Retrieval systems.” Spanish native Julian Urbano Merino is a new tenure tracker in the Multimedia Computing Group.
“I don’t know what’s next but I would like to implement my modelling ideas in more exotic domains, beyond software evolution. I think applying our approach to track the evolution of laws for instance could yield some interesting results."
PhD Candidate Erik Vermij will defend his phd research on Tuesday 4th July with his thesis Moving workloads to a better place - Optimizing computer architectures for data-intensive applications. He worked on novel computer systems to better deal with an ever growing amount of data. Initially for radio astronomy only, but he later broadened his focus to also include generic graph and sparse-matrix methods. Erik was supervised by Professor Bertels (Computer Engineering) and Dr. Hagleitner (IBM).
