About Me

I am a researcher passionate about making air transportation more open and more sustainable . I am an assistant professor at TU Delft, working and researching in the domain of air traffic management at the Aerospace Engineering Faculty.

I enjoy creating open-source tools, and developed a few popular open tools for aviation research, including pyModeS and OpenAP. I have authored the book The 1090 Megahertz Riddle.

What’s up?

Currently, with colleagues around the globe, we are building the Journal of Open Aviation Science, a diamond open-access journal (free to publish and access), which promotes open source and reproducibility in aviation research.
