Profile

Prof.dr.ir. A. (Alexander) Verbraeck (MSc in applied mathematics 1987 (cum laude); PhD in logistics 1991), is a full professor at Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management, Multi Actor Systems Department. His research focuses on modeling and simulation, especially in heavily distributed environments and using real-time data. Examples of research on these types of simulations are real-time decision making, interactive gaming using simulations, and the use of 3D virtual and augmented reality environments in simulations.  The major application domain for research is logistics and transportation. In addition Alexander has a position as adjunct professor at the R.H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, USA. Here, he applies the modeling and simulation research for studying real-time supply chains. . His applied research in simulation, gaming, and training has been funded by organizations such as Maersk, Shell, KLM, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Port of Rotterdam, the National Forensics Institute, and Dutch Railroads. He presented over 100 refereed papers at conferences, wrote close to 20 book chapters, and published his work in a dozen journals.
