Teaching
In the autumnsemester of the academic year 2020/2021 I have taught the
courses:
 Linear Algebra A for first year students mathematics and physics;
 Operations Research for second/third year students mathematics;
and in the spring semester 2021 I am teaching:
 Combinatorial Group Theory for second/third year students mathematics;
 Complex Functions for second year students physics.
More information on this and on my teaching activities from previous years
can be found on my
teaching
page (in Dutch).
Research
My principal research interests lie in algorithmic group theory and
representation theory.
An application hereof lies in mathematical crystallography,
where I'm a consultant of the IUCr Commission on
Mathematical and Theoretical Crystallography
MaThCryst
(after being a member from 20052014).
On Friday, February 23^{rd} 2007, a
DIAMANT Intercity Seminar on Crystallography took place
in HG00.068 of the Huygensbuilding at the Radboud University Nijmegen.
See the list of
publications
for an overview of my research topics.
More generally, I am working on various aspects of computer algebra.
In the year 1996/97, I have been working with the Magma group at
the Univeristy of Sydney, contributing mainly to the packages on
groups, representations, lattices and local fields.
Depending on the specific tasks, I usually use the
Magma,
GAP
or
Maple
computer algebra packages.
Outside pure mathematics, I have been working on
automatic speech recognition at the Philips research labs in
Aachen (Germany) from 19982000
(see my
publications
page for some papers from that period).
Other tasks
Program coordinator
From 1 september 2011 onwards I have been program coordinator for both the
bachelor and master programmes in mathematics at Radboud University.
Since 1 september 2016 the coordination of the master program has been taken
over by a separate programme coordinator and my responsibility focused
on the bachelor program.
As of 1 september 2018 I have retired from the function of program coordinator.
Onderdeelcommissie FNWI
From 2003 to 2009, I represented the mathematics group in the
onderdeelcommissie (OC) of the faculty.
The OC (together with student representatives and the faculty management)
forms part of the
Facultaire Gezamenlijke Vergadering (FGV)
and is part of the workers' participation at the RU.
More information (in Dutch) on the OC can be found
here.
