On June 15, FSE PhD student Kathinka Frieswijk was awarded a Fulbright grant at the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science in Den Haag for a stay in the United States. The Fulbright program is a worldwide program for study and research exchange between the United States and more than 160 countries. It allows master students, PhD students and academics to pursue a graduate degree or conduct research at a prestigious American university.

Kathinka Frieswijk was awarded a Fulbright grant for PhD students. Using this grant, she will conduct research at Yale University, USA, in the field of applied mathematics focusing on decision-making processes of large multi-agent systems. This kind of research could for instance be applied in the control of the response of a population to a global pandemic or the climate crisis. At the moment, Frieswijk is a PhD student in the research group Discrete Technology and Production Automation of Ming Cao, part of the Engineering and Technology Institute Groningen (ENTEG).
