Prof.dr. M.E. (Martijn) Warnier


Martijn Warnier is professor of Complex Systems Design and the head of the Multi-Actor Systems Department. My research focuses on self-management of large scale socio-technical systems, such as sensor networks, the power grid or road networks. I study both operational aspects, such as robustness, resilience, efficiency and reliability, but also other aspects such as empowerment, security and privacy of users. I believe that, in general, the really interesting research challenges can only be solved by truly multidisciplinary research that combines expertise from researchers with a variety of academic backgrounds.

Several application domains are central in my research: the energy domain, distributed networks such as cloud computing and sensor networks, and green ICT. The societal impact of trust and privacy and security is studied in a wide context, ranging from agent based systems to cloud and grid computing.
