Our postdoc Simon Telen was honored with the Dutch Veni grant for highly promising young scientists. The 280 000 Euro grant allows him to further elaborate his research project “New frontiers in numerical nonlinear algebra” at the CWI Amsterdam. Congratulations!
Simon is one of 89 highly promising young scientists awarded by the Dutch Research Council NWO. Innovational Research Incentives Scheme Veni is aimed at researchers who have recently obtained their PhD and provides the laureates with the opportunity to further elaborate their own ideas during a period of three years. Simons describes his new research project at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam as follows: Mathematical equations are used to model many important phenomena in many fields of science. These equations are often complicated and challenging to solve. In this project, we will develop new strategies for solving such equations efficiently and accurately on a computer, and apply them to real-world problems.
