I defended my thesis Stochastic Optimization of Large-Scale Complex Systems on January 28th, 2016 at the Eindhoven University of Technology. The defense was a great experience, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as a PhD student. The colleagues at the Stochastics Operations Research group and EURandom were great, and I’m also especially grateful to my supervisors Johan van Leeuwaarden and Sem Borst for all the unique opportunities.
We have submitted Optimality gaps in asymptotic dimensioning of many-server systems, and it is currently under review. This is joint work between Jaron Sanders, Sem Borst, Johan van Leeuwaarden, and Guido Janssen. The arXiv preprint can be obtained via this link.
We have submitted Online Network Optimization Using Product-Form Markov Processes, and it is currently under review. It is joint work between Jaron Sanders, Sem Borst, and Johan van Leeuwaarden.
We have submitted Sub-Poissonian Statistics of Jamming Limits in Ultracold Rydberg Gases, and it is currently under review. It is joint work between Jaron Sanders, Matthieu Jonckheere, and Servaas Kokkelmans. You can find its preprint on arXiv.
We have submitted Optimal admission control for many-server systems with QED-driven revenues, and it is currently under review. It is joint work between Jaron Sanders, Sem Borst, Johan van Leeuwaarden, and Guido Janssen.
Physicsworld.com has published an article titled Why an ultracold gas is like a wireless network. It discusses the relation between wireless networks and Rydberg gases, and was based on our research discussed in Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 163001. The article is based on an interview with me. The article also discusses a few potential future directions for our research, which we have been thinking about.
We have submitted Wireless network control of interacting Rydberg atoms, which is joint work between Jaron Sanders, Rick van Bijnen, Edgar Vredenbregt and Servaas Kokkelmans. You can find a preprint of the article on arXiv. Ultimately, the article appeared in Physical Review Letters as Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 163001.
Today, I received a Certificate of nomination for the TU/e Final Project Award 2013, issued by the Department of Mathematics & Computer Science, Eindhoven University of Technology. I am very happy to have received this nomination! It is great to hear that my work was appreciated by the nominating jury.
