The uGent personell magazine was launched in the Spring of 2020. I was very fortunate to be one of the researchers that was interviewed for this fantastic new magazine.
The article can be found on my LinkedIn, in this post. The article is only available in Dutch.
I talk about my motivation to become a researcher, my previous and current work experience, and my research topic.
Since the beginning of my career, I have been a member of the International Institute of Forecasters (IIF). I attend their symposium (International Symposium on Forecasting; ISF) every year and always look forward to it. The standard of the presentations is high and it is always lovely to see my fellow researchers again. It is a very tight-knit community.
I was interviewed for their member profile section, in which I talk about my career, research and my connection to the IIF. You can find the article here.
I worked on an ING ‘Think Forward Initiative’ grant together with prof. dr. Dilek Önkal and dr. Wasim Ahmed. We looked into forecasting one’s own expenses and savings over the following months, and how this forecast would be influenced by presenting scenarios with varying degree of risk. You can find the webinar on Youtube.
