PhD candidate / guest
I am an external PhD student at the University of Amsterdam (CeNDEF) and Leiden University (LIACS), working at Statistics Netherlands. The working title of my thesis is 'Enriching official economic statistics using data-driven modelling techniques'. As this title suggests, the purpose of my research is to increase the informative value of official economic statistics by applying modelling techniques from both econometrics and data science. I am particularly interested in internet economy and the network structure of supply chains. Prof. dr. Cees Diks (UvA) and prof. dr. Jaap van den Herik (UL) are my promotors and dr. Frank Takes (UL) is my copromotor.
