My name is Yilin Huang (黄漪琳, Pinyin: huáng yī lín). I am Assistant Professor at TU Delft in the Netherlands where I also did my PhD (2013) and post-doc, all at the Section Systems Engineering and Simulation, Department Multi Actor Systems, Faculty Technology, Policy and Management.
I studied Computer Science in Vienna, Austria, first on Software Engineering and Distributed Systems Design and then Embedded and Real-time Systems. Since 2008, I have been working on (computer) Modelling and Simulation (M&S) methodology, with particular interests on data-driven and data analytics related issues in M&S. My dissertation (entitled Automated Simulation Model Generation) focused on using large datasets to automate model construction and calibration. My post-doctoral research was funded by the EU CIVIS project to develop enabling ICT technology for social participation and consumer engagement in the smart energy grid. I have many diverse interests, which make interdisciplinary research my gusto.
