Three new PhD students

We are happy to welcome three new PhD students of the PigIT alliance. They all start their studies on the first of March 2013. We are looking very much forward to our collaboration over the next three years.

Dan Børge Jensen is Master of Science in Engineering (System Biology) from the Technical University of Denmark. The title of his PhD project is Automatic learning and pattern recognition using sensor data. His main supervisor is Professor Nils Toft, and he will be member of the Population Biology group at Department of Large Animal Sciences at University of Copenhagen.
Katarina Sylow Dominiak is Master of Science in Biology from Aarhus University. She has worked 5 years as pig consultant at LMO. She has also been manager of a sow herd with 600 sows. The title of her PhD project is Methods for prioritization of alarms and intervention. Her main supervisor is Professor Anders Ringgaard Kristensen, and she will be member of the Production and Health group at Department of Large Animal Sciences at University of Copenhagen. Nevertheless, her daily place of work will be Department of Animal Science at Aarhus University where Senior Scientist Lene Juul Pedersen will be her co-supervisor.
Reza Pourmoayed is Master of Science in Industrial Engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran. From 2012 until now he has worked as a researcher in Institute for Trade Studies & Research (ITSR) in logistics and supply chain management fields. The title of his PhD degree is Optimization methods in a stochastic production environment. His main supervisor is Associate Professor Lars Relund Nielsen, and he will be member of the Operations Research group at the Department of Economics and Business at Aarhus University.


The fourth PhD project on Evolutionary operations as a tool for improving welfare and productivity was, unfortunately, not filled. It has, therefore, been decided to convert it to a post doc position.
