Freekjan Brink is a PhD student at the chair of Mathematics of Computational Science at University of Twente.
His research interest is numerical analysis, especially the interaction between mathematics and computer science, and his research project is titled 'FastFem: Behaviour of Fast Ships in Waves'. Ships navigating at fast speeds in mild to heavy seaway are often subject to high acceleration and pressure. The goal of the project is to derive a mathematical model which investigates these properties with the ultimate goal of improving ship design. His supervisor is prof. dr. ir. Jaap van der Vegt
