We have revised
Last week I travelled to Brisbane, Australia to attend two workshops, and to present our work on Clustering in Block Markov Chains at a conference called INFORMS-APS 2019. While the fourty-eight hours of travel were excruciatingly tiring (and don't get me started on the jetlag), attending these events was definitely worth it from an academic point of view.
After presenting my poster at Stochastic Networks 2018 on our manuscript Optimal Clustering Algorithms in Block Markov Chains, I received invitations to present at the machine learning seminars of the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam, as well as locally here at TU Delft. This post also provides you with our revised manuscript, which contains substantially extended results, as well asmy presentation.
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 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.
