RECENTRE - New 'High Tech for a Sustainable Future' programme

The proposal entitled ‘RECENTRE: Risk-based lifEstyle Change: daily-lifE moNiToring and Recommendations’ has been selected as one of the four ‘High Tech for a Sustainable Future’ 4TU programmes. Annemieke Witteveen (University of Twente) is the program leader.

Within RECENTRE, the aim is to empower patients to play a leading role in their lifestyle and health within their own environment. Integrated smart sensor systems and dynamic risk profiles are designed to support high patient engagement that can lead to personalized adaptive recommendations with high potential for adoption and lifestyle change. To obtain authentic and up-to date risk profiles, sensor and historic data will be complemented by expert and patient subjective assessments, and novel methods will be required to integrate the disparate data sources. 

Delft Institute of Applied Mathematics (DIAM) is part of the RECENTRE consortium and will provide the know-how on employing expert judgments and on developing methods to integrate disparate data sources for risk profiling patients. Tina Nane will coordinate DIAM’s contributions, and Dorota Kurowicka as well as a new colleague will also be involved.

The project facilitates a tenure track position within DIAM, which will be announced shortly. If you are interested in learning more about the position, please contact Tina Nane. Tina’s expertise lies in structured expert judgment, a mathematical method to elicit and aggregate expert uncertain assessments through performance evaluation, as well as in modelling dependent multivariate data by using graphical models such as Bayesian Networks and vines. Her work blends theoretical interests with applications that focus on uncertainty quantification and span over a variety of topics, including epidemiology, energy transition, engineering and scientometrics.
