Biography

L.F. Pascal Etman received the M.S. and Ph.D. degree in engineering mechanics from Eindhoven University of Technology in 1992 and 1997, respectively. His doctoral work involved the development of numerical techniques for design optimization of multibody systems using approximation concepts from structural optimization.

He currently is associate professor in the Manufacturing Networks group (former Systems Engineering group) of the Mechanical Engineering department at Eindhoven University of Technology. He was visiting scientist with Philips Semiconductors Nijmegen in 1998; visiting professor at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2001; visiting professor at the University of Pretoria in 2005; and visiting professor at the University of Stellenbosch in 2006. His research field of interest is systems design optimizaton, which aims at the development of methods and tools for model-based optimization of complex engineering systems. He has published research papers on optimization methods for system decomposition and coordination, sequential approximate optimization techniques for structural optimization, metamodelling approaches for simulation optimization, and the effective process time method for performance analysis and aggregate modeling of discrete manufacturing systems.
