About Me

I am an assistant professor at TU Delft, currently working in the CNS/ATM chair, Control and Simulation group, at the Aerospace Engineering Faculty. In addition to my core research, I am passionate about open-source , open science , and making air transportation more sustainable .

I am the author of book The 1090 Megahertz Riddle, and creator of open-source libraries pyModeS and OpenAP.

Currently, I am also a Co-Principal Investigator for the Sustainable Aviation Lab, which is recently established by the Aerospace Engineering Faculty of TU Delft. We aim at producing more accurate local and global environmental assessment models and providing solutions that reduce air transport emissions.
