Gerrit Jan de Bruin
I am a PhD-candidate in Computer Science working both at Leiden University and the Government of the Netherlands. My research is about applying network science in the infrastructure domain in collaboration with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. The ultimate goal is to assist inspectorates in their risk assessment in a data-driven way. This can aid in maximizing safety and minimizing environmental pollution with only limited inspection capacity.
I first obtained a bachelor’s degree in chemistry, but back then working with (substantial amounts of) data had already my interest. My masters is in analytical chemistry. In my MSc thesis I compared different analytical approaches to enforce sulphur emission regulation in international shipping, both from an instrumental and data science perspective.
