Since January 2016 she joined the capacity group Information Systems group of the Industrial Engineering Department as User Experience Designer for the GameBus project.
My Bachelor’s Degree was received from Zhengzhou University, China after four years (2010-2014) study majored in Biomedical Engineering. Then I was admitted into Zhejiang University as a Direct Ph.D. student in September, 2014. From March 2015 to December 2015, my work mainly focused on the standardization and mapping of Chinese clinical terminology and related Medical Terminology Services, which aimed to promote the medical information exchange and sharing. The technologies used included text similarity algorithm and Chinese words segmentation. In the end, I developed a web-based middleware software including terminology mapping and management services, which will be evaluated in a real hospital.
From the end of December of 2015, I was selected to take part in the Brain Bridge Project” Risk assessment to improve patient outcomes for cardiovascular diseases”. The goal of this project is to predict the risk of cardiovascular patients of different conditions using data mining technique so that practitioners can adopt suitable therapies.
I received my Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from University of Manchester in UK. Before joining TU Eindhoven, I worked as an assistant professor in the Department of Econometrics at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Earlier, I worked in the Algorithmics group at TU Delft, in the Computational Intelligence group at TU Clausthal (Germany), and in the Institute for Advanced Computer Studies at University of Maryland, College Park, USA.
I consider myself an “Artificial Intelligence” researcher. During my Ph.D and post-doc period, I developed algorithms and mechanisms to solve multi-agent problems, i.e., task allocation, planning and scheduling problems that involve cooperative or self-interested players. Over the past a few years, I have been also investigating how data can help to improve decision making and optimization. For example, I designed machine learning methods to learn bidders’ behaviour models, and used the learned models to optimize auction design.
At TUE, I will continue my research on data driven decision making, algorithm design, (computational) game theory, and multi-agent systems. In addition, I am looking forward to learning new knowledge, tackling new application domains, and establishing new cooperations!
I was born and raised in Pretoria, South Africa. I’ve unfortunately never had a lion or a giraffe for a pet though. In 2008 I earned a Bachelor of industrial engineering from the University of Pretoria and in 2012 I completed a Master of Engineering Management from the University of Johannesburg. I’ve spent about six years as an industrial engineer in the electricity and manufacturing industry sectors. My recent research looked into the way Product Lifecycle Management technology can be used to enable collaboration across the product value chain. I’m interested in anything related to business processes, systems engineering and complexity theory. I now aim to make use of my experience and knowledge to contribute as much as possible to the HORSE project (I still don’t know what the acronym is for).
As a PhD student at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven I have two primary objectives: learning as much as possible and making a meaningful contribution. Oh, perhaps a third objective is also in order: earning a PhD from this wonderful institution. Additionally, I wish to experience the various cultures to be found in and around the university and I want to learn to speak Dutch properly. I look forward to the many interesting discussions we are bound to have here and perhaps even working together in the not too distant future.
I will have my Integrated Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering at ‘Instituto Superior Técnico’ in Lisbon (Portugal) by the end of September, 2015. The Master is specialized in the fields of optimization, automation and control of mechanical systems thus I have a strong background in areas such as artificial intelligence, neural networks, fuzzy systems and optimal control. I also did a one-semester international exchange with Aarhus University (Denmark) from August 2013 until February 2014, where I gained an education in a new and different way.
The aim of my MSc thesis was to provide an analysis and methodology on how to proceed when facing transportation logistic problems with high complexity. During my thesis, I faced the current huge breakdown that exists in between transportation execution and planning. At Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), I will continue my research in the filed that I have been developing during my Master thesis. I will work as an employee of research & education in the Industrial & Innovation Sciences department.
I took Industrial Engineering major for my bachelor degree in 2007 from Telkom University, Indonesia. After experiencing working as lead researcher in NGO and consulting firm for 4 years, I continued my study and did my master degree in 2013 majoring Industrial Engineering and Management at Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia. My research is in the utilization of enterprise information system for managerial benefit and explore its potential for developing knowledge management.
Currently, I am a pursuing my PhD in the Information Systems subdepartment of the School of Industrial Engineering, department of Industrial Engineering and Innovation Science, TU Eindhoven, Netherland. The general research domain of my PhD project will be ‘Support for Virtual Enterprises’, possibly covering elements from Information System Engineering, Business Process management, and Business Engineering.
In March 2015 I got my Master’s degree in Biomedical Engeneering at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the field of Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering. I also studied at Leiden University where I obtained my Master’s degree in Medicine in 2008. With this background I am able to bridge the gap between technology and patient. It inspires me to combine multiple disciplines and work with experts from different professional backgrounds.
Currently, I work as PhD student at the department of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine at the Catharina Hospital in Eindhoven. My PhD project is part of the Data Science Flagship, a collaboration between TU/e and Philips Research (IMPULS 2.0). The aim of the project is to improve the outcome of cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) using hospital data and/or personal health devices by discriminating beforehand between responders and non-responders of CRT.
Zahra Valizadeh-Gh received her BSc. degree in applied mathematics from Kharazmi University, Tehran, Iran, in 2005, the MSc. degree in the same major from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2007, and the PhD. degree in numerical optimization from the Islamic Azad University (IAU), Iran, in 2012. Since 2012, she has been Assistant Professor at IAU. Now, she has joint to Information Systems Group as a visiting researcher for six mounths. Her research interests include the fuzzy logic, systems of fuzzy equations and systems of fuzzy relational equations/inequalities as well as the multi-criteria optimization theory.

I got my Ph.D. degree in computer science, in the area of migration to services from VU University Amsterdam. I also was a postdoc for 2 year @VU in Sofware and Service group. My research interests are in design reasoning knowledge management, software architecture, service orientation, and sustainable e-services.
During my PhD, I developed an approach for rehabilitating pre-existing legacy assets by encapsulating them as services that are, simultaneously, value-adding and technically sustainable. Such services, embedding various business functions, are specifically designed to smoothly operate in modern business processes, within networked organizations. This approach, called the Lean & Mean migration approach, was emerged out of existing practice of service migration in various industries.
During my Postdoc, I have investigated the discrepancies between business and technical sustainability of services. In the area of design thinking, I have performed an empirical study on the inuence of reflections on the the way designers of services and processes think. The main finding, simply put, was that such a design is a tricky business influenced by many cognitive factors such as the ability of a designer to reflect or communicate with various stakeholders.
At TU/E I will continue my research on guiding service designers thinking and reasoning in order to address many of the complexities inherent in service design.
