My name is Jason and I will be joining the Information Systems group in September. I grew up in Curaçao and when I was 18 years old I left Curaçao to go study in Rotterdam. In 2012 I obtained my Bachelor’s diploma in Economics and in the following years I also obtained Master’s degrees in Economics (2014) and Econometrics and Management Science (2015). For the last two years I worked at CPB Netherlands Bureau for Economic Policy Analysis as an academic researcher.
The PhD project which I will be working on will aim to develop a decision-support tool for revenue optimization for online companies who provide content or physical goods by combining state-of-the-art techniques from the world of big data and from the world of optimization. Furthermore, the project will involve both the OPAC and IS groups. I am looking forward to getting to know and collaborating with the rest of both groups!
