An opportunity has presented itself to do thesis research with TNO Maritime on shipping data.
The project has the following phases.
– desk research of business situation
– analysis of shipping data on routes, fuel consumption, meteorological data, physical models
– building of an optimization model
– implementation plan and recommendations.
An option exists to do this work on site at a mediumsized (50 ships) shipping firm in the Rotterdam area.
Interaction with the employees of the shipping firm is required, and will make this project a hands on experience.
Sharp analytical insight an knowledge of, or the ability to learn, data science tools ranging from spreadsheets to R is necessary.
Affinity with or interest in the maritime world is beneficial.
