I am a PhD student at CWI
under supervision of Peter Grünwald
. One day a week I work at Leiden University with Jacqueline Meulman
as coordinator of the MSc programme Statistical Science. I work on problems and solutions in the intersection of machine learning and statistics where the model or data collection process is misspecified. At the moment I'm working on a general framework for hypothesis testing with Wouter Koolen
and Peter Grünwald
, Bayesian inference under model misspecification with Peter Grünwald
, and foundations of Bayesian inference with Tom Sterkenburg
. I'm also interested in the mathematical and philosophical foundations of Bayesianism, machine learning, statistics and probability theory.
Spring 2018 I am TA for Peter Grünwald's Information Theoretic Learning course, for which I also give two lectures on online learning and bandits.
Autumn 2017 I lectured the new MasterMath course Machine Learning Theory together with Wouter Koolen and Peter Grünwald. I did the first part of the course on Statistical Learning Theory.
Spring 2017 I was TA for Peter Grünwald's Information Theoretic Learning course, and I gave a lecture on online learning.
I obtained a BSc in Mathematics
from the University of Groningen and a MSc in Mathematics cum laude
from Leiden University, with my thesis
on the Safe-Bayesian Lasso. I also hold a Bachelor of Music
from the Prins Claus Conservatoire and a Master of Music
from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, both in Classical music - Horn.
