Derian Boer – IWSA Supporter
I am part of different working groups and committees of Friends of the Earth Germany for fair dealing with nature targeting global climate justice. My professional carrier started with business informatics. Today, I’m a PhD student in computer science at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany.
In my eyes, wind and wind hybrid propulsion have not only high ecological but even economical potential in maritime transport. My vision is to contribute to the great movement towards emission-free shipping by advancing navigation designed for the special needs of sailing. In navigation, competing objectives such as ETA, energy consumption and safety need to be balanced in a volatile metocean environment. My goal is to develop reliable, effective, validated solutions in my present thesis. Initiatives to cooperate are always appreciated.
