Econometric models for insurance applications: essays on Bayesian mortality models, heavy tails and extreme value statistics with censored data. KU Leuven
Life insurers, pension funds, health care providers and social security institutions face increasing expenses due to continuing improvements of mortality rates. The actuarial and demographic literature has introduced a myriad of (deterministic and stochastic) models to forecast mortality rates of single and multiple populations.
Chapter 2 in this PhD thesis presents aBayesian analysis of two related multi-population mortality models of ...
We study testing model assumptions in high-dimensional regression models without the sparsity assumption that only a few coefficients are important. Combining estimators, predictions or heterogeneous datasets is another topic of focus of which we will study the theoretical properties to arrive at better estimation methods. Several aspects of the domain of functional data will be investigated, such as the use of non and semiparametric ...
Drawing up a methodology with the aim of obtaining comparable employment statistics at the European and international institutions in the Brussels-capital region and the implementation of it KU Leuven
The aim of this research project is to draw up a methodological framework to produce statistics on employment at the European and international institutions, in such a way that these are similar to the existing official, administrative, Belgian employment statistics. Subsequently, the goal is to realize a pilot of bottom-up data collection and to create a database. To do this, the list of institutions has to be made up to date and completed. ...
Novel statistics tools for reliable proteome-wide quantification of post-translational modifications Ghent University
Proteins carry out the majority of functions in a living cell. Yet proteins are often subject to naturally occurring modifications of their basic structure, which happen after the protein has been synthetized in the cell. These modifications are termed post-translational modifications (PTMs) and can have substantial effects on protein function and activity. Therefore, these PTMs are highly relevant to our understanding of the cell in health ...
