Erwin Bezembinder Drs. Ing.

Erwin Bezembinder

Erwin grew up in the beautiful Frisian village of Beetsterzwaag. He received his BSc (Ing.) in Traffic Engineering in 1995 and his MSc (Drs.) in Environmental and Technical Planning in 1998. He finished his master’s degree by writing a thesis about junction modelling at Goudappel Coffeng (GC). Subsequently, Erwin moved to Deventer and started working for GC as a traffic and transport modelling consultant. In addition to working on various transport modelling projects, he was part of the team that created the first version of the transport modelling package OmniTRANS.

After five years Erwin officially moved to Omnitrans International, being a subsidiary company of GC, and started working as a model and software developer. He continued working on junction modelling in both static and dynamic traffic assignment models. In 2006, he made a career change and started teaching Traffic Engineering at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences. During supervising students performing research on various transport modelling topics, Erwin got homesick of doing research himself. He started doing research at Windesheim and obtained a subsidy for doing a PhD research at the University of Twente. Starting from August 2012, Erwin combines his job as a lecturer at Windesheim with doing a PhD research concerning the multi-objective network design problem for junctions in urban traffic networks.

Erwin likes playing badminton and traveling. The latter especially in South-East-Asia and with his wife and two kids.
