Hans van Lint

After getting my Msc degree Civil Engineering in 1997, I worked for a software firm (IT Works), engineering consultancy (DHV) and a municipality (Rotterdam) before returning to TU Delft for a PhD at the Transport & Planning dept. of Civil Engineering in 2001, which I finished in 2004 (on ‘Freeway travel time prediction’). Since then I was assistant (until 2009) and associated professor and appointed Anthony van Leeuwenhoek Professor in 2013 (all at the same department).

My research lies on the interface between traffic flow theory and simulation and advanced data processing and assimilation. I have worked (with my colleagues and PhD students) on travel time reliability; on new traffic flow theories and models; and on data assimilation and fusion methods for estimating and predicting the traffic state in networks. Many of these research projects have led to follow up and valorisation projects in which the developed models and tools have led to innovative applications in practice.
