I am a PhD student in Computing Science, part of the Intelligent Systems group at the Bernouilli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence at the University of Groningen. My project combines machine learning methods with aspects from system identification and differential geometry to achieve explainable results.
Prior to my PhD, I obtained a bachelor's degree in both Physics and Computing Science, as well as a master's degree in Computing Science. I was fortunate enough to be able to apply my knowledge on the two fields in my bachelor project in which I applied machine learning techniques to understand and improve the effiency of organic solar cells. The same holds true for my master's project, where I applied a statistical physics framework to study the behaviour of neural networks.
Although it can be challenging to communicate with different scientific communities,
I very much enjoy working in an interdisciplinary environment. I take pride in presenting my work in a clear and concise manner, and love the creative aspect of the job.
