Hi everyone! My name is Carmen Tretmans and I am 21 years old. Last year, I started my master’s in Applied Mathematics. Since this is quite theoretical, I decided I wanted to do something practical this year. I am a supporter of green energy and love mathematics. That’s how I ended up being the Strategist at Green Team Twente. As a strategist I will mainly focus on the driving strategy and try to answer questions, like: What is the optimal speed of the car during a race? Or, when is it most efficient to accelerate or brake? I will try to answer these questions by modelling the car and its movement. By answering these questions, I hope to find the most efficient driving strategy with which we can win the Shell Eco Marathon.
