Research description:

Henk van Waarde was a PhD candidate within the DSSC (2016-2020). He was supervised by Dr. Pietro Tesi (ENTEG) and Prof. dr. Kanat Camlibel (JBI) in the project Complex Dynamical Networks: From Data to Connectivity Structure. The research project concerns networks of dynamical systems. A network of dynamical systems should be understood as a collection of dynamical systems that communicate and/or interact with each other. Often, the connectivity structure of such systems is not known exactly. The connectivity structure is, however, a highly important factor determining the overall behavior of the dynamical network. Hence, this project aims at developing new system-theoretic methods and algorithms to infer the connectivity structure of a network of dynamical systems, on the basis of observed data obtained from the network.

Drs. van Waarde studied Applied Mathematics (Systems, Control and Optimization) at the University of Groningen. His research interests are in systems and control theory, with an emphasis on networks of dynamical systems. Henk van Waarde has previously worked on new graph-theoretic methods for controllability analysis of networked dynamical systems. He also worked on fault detection and isolation in water distribution networks.
