M.J.H.M. (Matthijs) van der Loos

Erasmus School of Economics (ESE)
Erasmus University Rotterdam

I graduated as Master of Science in Informatics & Economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2007. The title of my master thesis is 'Recommending via Hybrid Probabilistic Latent Semantic Analysis'. It has been published in the ERIM report series and in the journal AI Communications.

After spending a semester at the University of Sydney (Australia), I began my doctoral research titled 'Genetic predispositions to entrepreneurial behaviour' in April 2008. My supervisors are prof. dr. Roy Thurik and prof. dr. Patrick Groenen. My daily supervisor is dr. Philipp Koellinger. I will defend my thesis on Thursday, June 20, 2013.
