Danny Schipper (1985) is a PhD candidate at the Department of Public Administration of Erasmus University Rotterdam. In 2009 he graduated in Urban Planning at Utrecht University and in 2011 in Public Administration at Erasmus University.
After graduation he was as a researcher on the project Flexibility in Port Development and Port Management in which he collaborated with researchers from the RHV institute. In addition he wrote the research proposal Managing Complex System Disruptions (MaCSyD) with researchers from the Erasmus University and the VU University Amsterdam for the Partnership Program ExploRail, which was granted funding in 2012.
Danny now works as a PhD student within the MaCSyD project studying the communication and coordination within the Dutch Railway System during disruptions. Several organizations are responsible for the management of these disruptions, each with their own goals, perceptions, resources, and tasks. This research aims to give a systems view on how the different organizations involved coordinate their activities, while dealing with the complexity and uncertainty of the disruption management process
His PhD research is supervised by Prof. Dr. Joop Koppenjan and Dr. Lasse Gerrits.
