  • Profile

    Professor H.M. Amman (1957) was the vice-president of the UvA-AUAS/HvA Executive Board from February 2014 to December 2016.

    Amman started his professional career at the UvA, where he completed his studies and obtained his PhD in Economics, before going on to become assistant professor at the Department of Macro-economics and later professor of Computational Economics. Between 2000 and 2006, Amman was affiliated with Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), where he held successive posts as dean of the School of Technology Management and member of the Executive Board. Amman was vice-president and member of the Executive Board of Utrecht University (UU) from 2006 to 2014.
