Persoonlijk profiel

Quote

“I want to translate human activity data into something useful for people, so they can be more active, recover in responsible ways and use that as motivation to stay active.”

Research profile

Aarnout Brombacher is Full Professor of Design Theory and Information Flow Analysis. Brombacher has an interest in field-data analysis of complex systems in interaction with users and user communities, data analytics and the resulting customer perceived design quality models. His early career at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) focused on quality and reliability management, both in the Department of Industrial Design and the Department of Mechanical Engineering. He has extensive experience in industrial quality and reliability improvement projects and developing tools and analysis methods for this field.

Later, his interests shifted to sports, activity and human health, using the increasingly available amounts of individual activity data to help create opportunities for more people to become active. He is currently member of the National TopTeam (advisory body of the Dutch government) on Sports and Vitality representing the 14 Dutch universities in this field.

Academic background

Aarnout Brombacher holds a BSc and MSc in Electrical Engineering and a PhD in Engineering Science, all from Twente University of Technology. Hewas appointed Full Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 1993. He has also worked as a senior consultant for the Reliability section of Philips CFT Development Support.

Brombacher is a prolific author, having authored and co-authored over 100 journal papers. Together with Doug Montgomery, Brombacher is chief-editor of the journal Quality and Reliability Engineering International. Brombacher became Dean of the Industrial Design department in 2010 and, in addition, Vice-Rector of TU/e International Relations since 2012.
