Academic Supervision

As an assistant professor, I am involved with the supervision of PhD, MSc, and Bsc students. Here is an overview of the students that I supervise.

Currently under my supervision

PhD candidates

Students who have finished their MSc education at a university, can apply for a position as a PhD candidate. Over the course of four years, PhD candidates learn to conduct original research, independently. At the end of their four year program, each PhD candidate writes a thesis and defends their work in front of a committee. If their defense goes well, the candidate is awarded the highest academic degree: Doctor of Philosophy, i.e., PhD.

I am currently involved in the supervision of the following PhD students:

Gianluca Kosmella
PhD student
Eindhoven University of Technology
Mathematics & Computer Science / Electrical Engineering

Albert Senen-Cerda
PhD student
Eindhoven University of Technology / Delft University of Technology
Mathematics & Computer Science / Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science



  • Statistical Learning Theory, academic years 2019 – 2021 at TU Eindhoven
  • Advanced Calculus, academic year 2019 – 2020 at TU Eindhoven
  • Data Communications Networking; academic year 2018 – 2019 at TU Delft


  • Rens Hoogendorp, academic year 2020 – 2021

Here is a list of PhD students I was (partially) involved with in the past:

MSc students

In order to graduate from university, students need to write a MSc thesis. The MSc thesis is the culmination of approximately 6-9 months of project work (depending on the university) in either an academic research group, or in collaboration with a company.

I’m currently helping the following students:

  • Marleen Roozen (TU Eindhoven, academic year 2020-2021) is exploring the possibility of a company internship and/or MSc project on the Reconstruction of phylogenetic trees in cross-bred plants.

Here is a list of students that I supervised in the past:

  • Jori van Falier (TU Eindhoven, academic year 2020-2021) succesfully completed his internal MSc thesis titled Towards proving a Marchenko–Pastur law for dependent random matrices with decaying covariances.
  • Daan Rutten (TU Eindhoven, academic year 2019-2020), did a MSc research internship at Network Architectures and Services.
  • Jinghui Jiang (TU Delft, academic year 2018-2019) did a company internship at the Koninklijke KPN N.V. She Optimized KPN’s Customer Assurance Process.
  • Pascal Lagerweij (TU Delft, academic year 2018-2019) successfully defended his MSc thesis Reinforcement Learning in Block Markov Chains on March 29th, 2019.

BSc students

While not mandatory, Bachelor students sometimes have the ambition to undertake an internship with companies, or would like to do a small project in a research group.

In the past, I’ve helped the following students:

  • Luuk Gubbels (TU Eindhoven, academic year 2019-2020) did a BSc project on Regulating open and closed particle networks using Misanthrope processes.
  • Willem van Wijk (TU Eindhoven, academic year 2019-2020) did a BSc project titled A brief exploration into divergent series in probability theory.
  • Jilles Noordhoek (TU Delft, academic year 2018-2019) finished an internship at Prodrive Technologies.
