SCIENCE


career

My work on scientific research mostly took place at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands, from which I graduated in Econometrics (1998) and Mathematical Statistics (1998), and obtained my PhD on limit theorems for stochastic processes (2002). After one year of Operations Research (2003) I moved to Psychometrics where I received VENI (2005) and VIDI (2008) research grants from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) for my research on tensor decompositions. In 2015 I left the department of Psychometrics as tenured associate professor. In 2016 I started working as visiting professor at KU Leuven, campus Kortrijk, Belgium, at the department of Engineering. There I joined a project to solve polynomial systems by using tensor decompositions. I received an EU Marie Curie fellowship (2017) to continue this research, but I decided to explore life outside academia instead.

​Below you can find my publications and technical reports, including accompanying Matlab codes, and slides of some of my presentations. If you believe in citation scores, then this may be of interest ;-)
