I am currently a Doctoral Candidate at the Control Systems Technology (CST) group at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). My current research interests include control theory, machine learning, digital twinning, predictive maintenance, and fault detection and isolation in high-tech equipment, with a particular focus on the semiconductor industry.
Koen Classens received the B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (cum laude) from Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands, in 2016. From the same university, he received the M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (cum laude) and the M.Sc. in Systems & Control (cum laude), both in 2019. In 2018 he was a research intern at the University of Canterbury (New Zealand) where he collaborated in a research project about the design, modelling and control of a modular snake robot with torque feedback for locomotion on irregular surfaces. His M.Sc. graduation work was on ‘Multiphysical Modeling and Control of Photopolymerization for Additive Manufacturing’ which contributes to a new process control paradigm where material properties are controlled in closed-loop and in real-time. His work was awarded with the MSc thesis award (Mechanical Engineering) and the Unilever Research Prize.
