PhD students

In his PhD project, Wouter van Loon develops multi-view stacking (MVS), a flexible framework for prediction with data from multiple sources (e.g., neuro-imaging, genetic and self-report data). I jointly supervise his project with Prof. Mark de Rooij and Dr. Botond Szabo (Bocconi University).

In his PhD project, Zino Brystowski works on testing and integrating theories from different domains with multi-view stacking (MVS). His project is part of the Gravitation program GUTS, and I jointly supervise his project with Prof. Mark de Rooij.

In his PhD project, Giorgio Spadaccini is working on interpretable machine learning and inference using prediction rule ensembling, Shapley values and Bayesian regression. I jointly supervise his PhD project with Prof. Mark van de Wiel (Department of Epidemiology and Data Science, Amsterdam University Medical Center).

Agostino Gnasso is a PhD student at the Department of Economics and Statistics, University of Naples, Federico II. We are developing interpretation methods for black-box machine-learning methods such as random forests and gradient boosting. In 2023-2024, Agostino is a visiting researcher at my group in Leiden. Agostino's PhD project is supervised by Prof. Massimo Aria and Dr. Carmela Iorio.
