Lincen is a PhD student working on a project titled 'Human-Guided Data Science by Interactive Model Selection', funded by an NWO TOP grant, in which he will combine MDL-based model selection with interactive data mining.

He was previously a Master student of Statistical Sciences (Data Science specialization) at Leiden University. He also did his Master's thesis, titled MDL-based Map Segmentation for Trajectory Mining, in the EDA group. In this project he came up with an extension of the existing 'MDL histogram' method to 2D, which was motivated by an application in trajectory mining. His master thesis was supervised by Dr. Matthijs van Leeuwen, Dr. Mitra Baratchi, and Prof. dr. Peter Gr├╝nwald.
