Mathematical models for healing burns

Daniël Koppenol, together with Fred Vermolen (both TU Delft), has developed various mathematical models to simulate the healing of wounds, in particular burns, with the aim of improving healing. As Vermolen points out, collaboration between the disciplines of mathematics, biology and medicine is still in its infancy, but it would offer great opportunities. Koppenol has been awarded a PhD for this work at TU Delft on Thursday, 15 June.

Delft Data Science Seminar - Online Education - 31 March

Delft Data Science organises its newest edition in the series of Delft Data Science seminars from the EEMCS faculty. These seminars address the challenges and opportunities emerging from large quantities of heterogeneous, complex, networked and dynamic data influencing virtually all socio-economic domains. The resulting knowledge from DDS research has a huge impact on all those aspects in society. One of the socio-economic domains DDS is involved in is Online Education. Massive Open Online Courses are an innovative way to make education available for everyone. But how can we guarantee the quality of Online Education with such a high demand. Three international speakers will share their insights together with Delft Data Science, other researchers, partners and with you at the international Open Education Week (27-31/03) on the 31st of March.
