Prof. dr. ir. Hai-Xiang Lin working on Data Analytics for Environmental Modelling joins CML
Prof.dr.ir. Hai-Xiang Lin is appointed on 1 March 2015 as part-time professor on Data Analytics for Environmental Modelling at CML on behalf of the R. Timman foundation. He will join the CML-department of Industrial Ecology. He has a position at the Department of Applied Mathematics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of Delft University of Technology, and he was a part-time professor at Tilburg University on behalf of the R. Timman foundation.
Lin obtained his PhD from Delft University of Technology in 1993. After graduation (ir.) in Applied Mathematics at Delft University of Technology, he worked at TNO in Rijswijk from 1986 to 1990. In 1990 he joined the Department of Applied Mathematics of Delft University of Technology. Dr. Lin has many years of research experience in mathematical modelling and high performance computing. In recent years his research interests shifted to parallel numerical algorithms, modelling and simulation of large scale systems. Examples of ongoing research projects include improving the forecast of volcanic ash (cloud) transport with data assimilation, and studying the impact of wind- and solar energy to the stability of electrical power grid.
Prof.dr.ir. Hai Xiang Lin will share his knowledge in mathematical modelling and high performance computing with other researchers of CML. He will actively cooperate with the Leiden Centre of Data Science (Prof.dr. Jaap van den Herik) and LIACS. Given his main appointment in Delft and having a chair now at CML will strongly support the further development of the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Sustainability. Furthermore, he is visiting professor of the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences and Shandong University, and has been collaborating with a number of universities in China for many years.
