I.I. (Ingeborg) de Pater MSc



Ingeborg de Pater is currently doing a PhD on predictive aircraft maintenance. In her PhD, she predicts the Remaining Useful Life of aircraft systems, with quantified uncertainty, using various machine learning methods. She subsequently uses these predictions to optimize the aircraft maintenance schedule with various optimization methods. In general, she is interested in applying machine learning and optimization methods to predictive aircraft maintenance. Prior to her PhD, she completed a bachelor and master in Econometrics and Operations Research at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
