Dr Wim Verhagen is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Engineering, teaching and researching in aircraft maintenance, with a particular focus on predictive maintenance and decision support.
Dr Verhagen is an academic within the Aerospace Engineering and Aviation Discipline in the School of Engineering. He is responsible for teaching in aircraft maintenance, including theoretical and practical approaches towards prediction, planning, execution and control of maintenance.
Dr Verhagen's research covers predictive maintenance and decision support. With respect to predictive maintenance, Dr Verhagen's research efforts focus on the development, implementation and validation of data-driven and hybrid diagnostic and prognostic models for aircraft systems. With respect to decision support, his research covers a comprehensive and integrated set of models to streamline and optimize maintenance planning, execution and control on operational and tactical time horizons.
Dr Verhagen has worked extensively with industry and in collaborative research projects, as part of his former assistant professorship at his alma mater TU Delft and currently as part of RMIT. Highlights include being TUD's principal investigator on the Clean Sky 2 AIRMES project and project co-coordinator and co-PI on the 5.6 million euro H2020 ReMAP. Dr Verhagen is responsible for the supervision of undergraduate and postgraduate research students, and has over 60 publications that can be found at Web of Science, Scopus, Google Scholar and ResearchGate. His ORCID ID is https://orcid.org/0000-0001-7593-9109.
