OrganizationDepartment of Plant Sciences
Organization UnitFarm Technology


Sjoerd Boersma obtained the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Systems and Control at Delft University of Technology, Holland, in 2015 and 2019, respectively. After working on modeling and control of wind farms during his Ph.D., Sjoerd worked in the research institute Supergrid-Institute, France. Here he worked on optimal experiment design for identification and control of power systems until the end of 2020. Currently, Sjoerd is working on modeling and predictive control of greenhouses with tomato crops. The objectives are 1) enhancing the tomato yield, while minimizing the consumed energy and 2) understanding the effects of different controller settings on crops in a greenhouse in order to better understand the dynamical relation between crop and greenhouse and what dynamics are important for control.
