Prior information and variational Bayes in high dimensional statistical network inference
This thesis develops statistical methods for the analysis of high dimensional data: high dimensional networks reconstruction (Chapters 1-4), incorporation of prior information in networks reconstruction (Chapters 2-4), incorporation of prior knowledge in genetic association studies (Chapter 3).

8th LCDS meeting: data science goes back to its roots
How are data science and statistics related? And what can data scientists learn from statisticians? These were the central questions of the 8th meeting of the Leiden Centre of Data Science (LCDS), which took place on Friday, November 13th. Recent developments in the field of statistics, including new
