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:

Albert Senen-Cerda

PhD Candidate

Albert Senen-Cerda is working on Driving quantum mechanical states using decision theory.

Albert Senen-Cerda, Jaron Sanders (2020). Almost Sure Convergence of Dropout Algorithms for Neural Networks. Preprint. ArXiv 2002.02247.
Albert Senen-Cerda was an instructor for Statistical Learning Theory and Advanced Calculus in the academic year 2019 – 2020 at TU Eindhoven, and for EE2T21 – Data Communications Networking in the academic year 2018 – 2019 at TU Delft.

MSc students

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

Here is a list of students that I currently supervise:

Lastly, students from other universities are welcome to come do a research internship in our research group. In the past, I hosted the following students:

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.

I’m currently helping the following students:

  • Willem van Wijk (TU Eindhoven, academic year 2019 – 2020) is doing a BSc project on Divergent series in applied probability theory.

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

  • Jilles Noordhoek (TU Delft, academic year 2018 – 2019) finished an internship at Prodrive Technologies.
