Hi, welcome to my personal webpage!
I graduated as a Computer Science Engineer from Ghent University in 2017, where I specialized in software development and machine learning. I'm originally from Belgium but moved to Cambridge UK to work for Prowler.io. I am a Machine Learning Researcher in the probabilistic modelling team, mainly working on cutting-edge Gaussian Process based models.
I'm interested in Machine Learning, nice code, Linux and Vim. I also love cooking and football. On this page, I will write over my personal projects and occasionally blog.
I obtained my bachelor's degree from Ghent University in 2015. At Ghent University, all engineering disciplines (e.g. mechanical, chemical, physics, civil engineering) have in the first two years a lot of shared classes like calculus, linear algebra, physics, chemistry, material science, signal processing, electrical circuits and systems, etc. From the third year on, the more traditional Computer Science courses start, such as digital electronics, operating systems, information techology, etc.2012 - 2015
During the summer of 2015 I did an internship at "In the Pocket" a leading Belgian company in IoT, VR and software development. During the intern I developed an Android App, called Citie, which is reaching 10.000 downloads :). The app lets you collect points and eventually rewards by shopping in associated malls in Belgian cities. Besides this I researched the implications on apps when the smartphone was updated from Lollopop to Marshmallow Android OS.August 2015 - September 2015
During my second master year I was able to study one semester in Taiwan at the National University of Taiwan. At NTU I continued my master program with a focus on Robotics and studied the Chinese language. I found this exchange program extremely enriching and educational, both on a cultural and academic level.2016
In june 2017 I obtained my Master's Degree in Computer Science Engineering from Ghent University. In my master I focused primarly on Machine Learning and Robotics. In my master's thesis, I studied Bayesian Machine Learning and more precisely "(Deep) Gaussian Processes". A copy of my thesis can be found here: UGent lib.2012-2017
At Prowler.io I'm part of the awesome probabilistic modeling team, led by James Hensman. We mainly work on large scale Cox Processes, denisty estimation, model-based Reinforcement Learning and our favorite (opensource) toolbox GPflow.September 2017 - present
