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 numerical techniques for design optimization of multibody systems combining elements of multibody system dynamics with approximation concepts from structural optimization.

He is associate professor of Mechanical Enigeering in the Manufacturing Networks group 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 is currently working on sequential approximate optimization techniques for structural optimization, metamodelling approaches for simulation optimization, system optimization through decomposition and coordination, and the effective process time for performance analysis and aggregate modeling of the discrete manufacturing systems.
