Research that transcends individual disciplines is highly regarded in academia, yet known to be incredibly challenging. Matthijs Cluitmans demonstrates that it is not only possible, but also of great added value. He obtained a joint PhD in 2016 from the Department of Data Science and Knowledge Engineering (DKE) and the School for Cardiovascular Diseases (CARIM). Before that, he studied both disciplines in Maastricht, and he now works for both institutes as well as at Philips Research.
A research project titled 'Intelligent games for assessing cognitive, social and physical capacities of elderly and children' was awarded a prize at the Pre-Dies Natalis symposium 'The Future of a Data-Driven Society'.
