Students for students: Jaap’s advice for the York residency and more!

Hello everyone,

Although I am in the middle of reading midterms for the January cohort, I could not resist the temptation to surprise you all with a new video from the Students4Students series. Today our special guest is Jaap, whom some of you will know either from the residency or from our online world.

I caught up with Jaap last year in York, and for reasons outside my control the video was delayed again and again, but now it is here. Jaap has some practical advice for those of you attending the York residency, and also some advice about the programme in general.

Dr. Radu Negoescu

After finishing his MSc in Computer Science and working as a freelance consultant for several companies, including RKC, Radu went back into research and completed his PhD in Computer Science at the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland (EPFL) and the Idiap Research Institute in Martigny. His research interests lie at the intersection between traditional computer science and human behaviour, and he has now returned to RKC hoping to pass forward some of the knowledge and skills acquired during his PhD studies to current and future managers, while at the same time help RKC maintain its long-standing focus on quality.

    Thanks for the great advice Jaap! You visited “the Minister” for your dissertation? Which minister do you mean, I hope we will be able to read your dissertation one day!

    York Minster is one of our great national institutions in the UK. I live about 30 minutes away from there when I am home and I am looking forward so much to the privilege of graduation there if successful.

    Mu daughter’s best friend from university just completed her Master’s at York University and and graduated there last November and the pictures were amazing.
