Dr.ir. S.A. (Sebastiaan) Meijer


Prof. dr.ir. Sebastiaan Meijer is full professor in Health Care Logistics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. Meanwhile he is part-time associate professor at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands. He leads GaPSlabs: a multi-disciplinary center for gaming and participatory simulation in complex systems like transport, logistics, health care, urban development and energy. His main interests are in design methods for such systems, and how different methodologies shape decisions by authorities that manage complex multi-layered organizations and loosely coupled services. Gaming simulation in this sense is used for hypothesis testing, studying behaviour, knowledge and cognition, and designing new practices and procedures. Validity aspects of this type of research are his special interest, as well as multi-method simulation. Sebas received his PhD from Wageningen University in 2009, for which thesis he won the Special Category of the Deutscher Planspielpreis 2010 for best European PhD dissertation on gaming methodology. His publications are both in domain and in methodology oriented conferences and journals and won several best paper awards. He is a honorary visiting professor at IIIT Bangalore, and was visiting fellow at CSTEP, Bengalore, India at the Next Generation Infrastructure Lab. He is coordinator for EU projects within FP7 (PETRA, FABRIC (sub-soordinator)), and EIT ICT Labs (Activity Line ‘Mobile Data for Control Rooms’). He leads the RGS projects between ProRail and TU Delft too.
