Since January 2018 I am a **University Researcher** in the Turbulence and Vortex Dynamcs group, Department of Applied Physics, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven.
I am PI of the NWO-VENI research grant:

financed by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

pedestrian dynamics & automated tracking

statistical mechanics & Langevin equations, for and from big data analytics

computer vision & deep neural networks

scientific & high performance computing, scientific data management

software design & engineering

An extensive description of my work including pictures and videos can be found on the website of the Crowdflow research group.
