Jacobien Carstens studied at the University of Amsterdam and received her PhD from RMIT University (Melbourne, Australia) in 2016. During her PhD she worked on the analysis of complex networks. She is now working as a postdoc at the UvA under supervision of Michel Mandjes and Mark de Berg. 


Her current work focuses on the development and analysis of routing algorithms for dynamic networks. This topic is approached from the perspectives of algorithm design and stochastic modelling.
