I am a PhD student in economics under supervision of prof.dr. Laurens Cherchye (KU Leuven) and prof.dr. Bram De Rock (ULB). I expect to obtain my PhD on 19/09/2017. My main research interests are in efficiency and productivity analysis.
I will join the department of food and resource economics (IFRO) at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark) as a postdoctoral researcher from October 2017 onwards where I will work on the Tech4Effect project.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, travelling and programming.
MSc in Advanced Studies in Economics, 2013
MSc in Mathematical Engineering, 2012
BSc in Computer Science, 2010
I keep a repository with useful MATLAB utility functions that intend to make MATLAB programming just that more easy.
Nonparametric Efficiency and Productivity Analysis for Julia. A toolbox for doing efficiency analysis and computing productivity change using nonparametric techniques.
NonParametric Regression Laboratory for MATLAB (NPRLab) is a MATLAB toolbox for nonparametric regression. In particular, it implements a variety of linear estimators. Data rescaling and bandwidth tuning is done automatically by the software. Finally, the toolbox also features confidence interval estimation by the volume-of-tube formula both in a one-dimensional and multi-dimensional setting.
This academic year I am a daily advisor for 1 master thesis student. In the past, I was a daily advisor for 2 individual master thesis students and 1 group of 5 master thesis students.
I am also the teaching assistant for the module Seminarie methoden voor economische analyse in the 2nd semester.
