I hold an MA and a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Groningen. I wrote my PhD thesis on the theory of universal prediction stemming from algorithmic information theory. This work was performed at both the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI, the Dutch national research institute for mathematics and computer science) and the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Groningen, supervised by Peter Grünwald and Jan-Willem Romeijn, respectively.
Before that, I received a BSc in Artificial Intelligence (VU University Amsterdam), a MSc in Logic (ILLC, University of Amsterdam), and a MSc in History and Philosophy of Science (Descartes Centre, Utrecht University).
My research is concerned with the philosophy of induction and the foundations of (information-theoretic) statistics and machine learning.
