Professional background

Ivo Adan studied mathematics at the Eindhoven University of Technology from 1980-1987 and wrote a masters thesis on the Monotonicity Properties in Queueing Networks, under supervision of Jan van der Wal.
Immediately after finishing his masters thesis, he started to do research for his Ph.D. thesis at the same university, under guidance of Jaap Wessels and Henk Zijm. The main contribution of his thesis is the development of a so-called compensation approach for the analysis of the equilibrium behaviour of two-dimensional Markov processes; see CWI Tract 104.
In October 1991 he joined the Stochastic Operations Research group at the Eindhoven University of Technology, where he is currently an associate professor. From August 2001 until July 2002 he visited the Operations Research Department of the University of North-Carolina. In December 2008 he also joined the Operations Research and Management group at the University of Amsterdam as (part-time) full professor.
He serves on the editorial board of Statistica Neerlandica, Queueing Systems, Asia Pacific Journal of Operations Research and Mathematical Methods of Operations Research. Ivo Adan is supervisor of the B-orientation in the two-year program Mathematics for Industry and he is scientific advisor of the research program Queueing and Performance Analysis of Eurandom.
