• Paulien Herder profile picture Paulien M. Herder

    Paulien Herder is a full professor “Engineering Systems Design in Energy & Industry” and section leader of the “Energy & Industry” group at Delft University of Technology.

    Paulien’s research has focused on design and design processes of large complex systems. More specifically, the design, construction, maintenance and operation of infrastructures under uncertainty is the main focus of her research. It combines insights from design engineering, complexity theory and asset management.

    Currently, her main interests lie within the Flexible Infrastructures programme of the Next Generation Infrastructures research programme, in particular as a programme leader for the Flexible Infrastructures subprogramme. More specifically, she currently advises Ph.D. students and postdoc researchers within this subprogramme in the area of design and operation of large-scale networks, ranging from reliability modeling at the design stage (RAM) to design principles for designing and maintaining infrastructures. She also conducts research in the area of dealing with long term uncertainty in the design and contracting stage, thereby building upon and expanding the body of knowledge of strategic asset management.

    Paulien is the Director of Research and director of the Graduate School for the Department of Technology, Policy and Management of TUDelft; she is scientific co-director of Next Generation Infrastructures, and she chairs the National platform for strategic infrastructure asset management. Paulien is a fellow of ISEAM.

    Assoc. Prof. Fazleena Badurdeen

    Dr. Fazleena Badurdeen is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and an active faculty member in the Institute for Sustainable Manufacturing (ISM) at the University of Kentucky (Lexington, KY, USA).

    Dr. Badurdeen’s research focuses on design, modeling and analysis of sustainable products and systems (manufacturing systems and supply chains) to achieve closed-loop material flow from pre-manufacturing, manufacturing, use through post-use stages of a product’s life-cycle using the 6R’s of reduce, reuse, recycle, recover, redesign and remanufacture as a platform.

    Her research, predominantly that involves the development of coordinated product and systems design optimization models by the application of these approaches, have been recognized through international awards. Dr. Badurdeen’s work has been published in numerous journals and presented at national and international conferences.

    Her research has been supported through funding from various agencies including the U.S. Department of Defense (US Air Force, US Army, DLA, etc.) and major U.S. manufacturing companies. She is a member of SME, ASME and IIE where she serves as the President of the Lean Division.
