Research Profile

Pieter Van Gorp is an assistant professor at the School of Industrial Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). He works at the Information Systems lab, with a primary focus on digital health tools. Pieter conducts research on personal health data as an economic asset. He considers health records as well as evidence-based workflow and decision support models as examples of this asset with underused economic potential. In the area of health records, he has performed research on MyPHRMachines, a platform for securely analyzing Personal Health Records in the cloud. In the area of workflow models, he has contributed novel transformations for UML, BPMN and Petri-Net models. Van Gorp is also a facilitator of reproducible research (e.g. via the cloud.)

Academic Background

In addition to his work as Assistant Professor at TU/e, he is also program manager of the Data Science Center Eindhoven (DSC/e), with a primary focus on matching TU/e data science research with societal challenges and industrial needs. Pieter also holds a part-time appointment at Utrecht University of Applied Sciences with the aim of realizing societal breakthroughs via connected health games. He also regularly gives talks to ‘non-scientific’ audiences, on topics such as personal health data and gamification.
