Research

My research is on data science and artificial intelligence, in particular (Bayesian) machine learning. In a nutshell, we use probability calculus and statistics to design and understand computing systems that can learn from data. See my publications for recent and older results. In 2006, I received a prestigious Vici grant and in 2014 a TOP grant, both from NWO. Besides that, I am involved in several projects that concern applications in, among others, neuroimaging and bioinformatics.

My research group is part of iCIS, the computer science institute within the Netherlands with the highest quality and viability (according to this official report, the successor of this one, in which iCIS also came out on top).

 

Thesis projects

Teaching

I teach several courses in computer science and artificial intelligence. People from our group put together several suggestions for Master and Bachelor thesis projects that students can do under our guidance.

Aankomende studenten: kijk op onze website om te zien waarom je in Nijmegen informatica of artificial intelligence moet komen studeren.

Other

I am a principal investigator (PI) at iCIS and an affiliated PI at the Donders Centre for Neuroscience. If you really have to, you can check out my (short, not really up-to-date) cv. On October 9, 2009, I held my inaugural speech.

On the personal side, I am the proud father of two kids.
