In the Dutch system, PhD supervision even by tenured scientific staff who do not (yet) hold a chair has to be accompanied by a full professor acting as a 'promotor'. In that role, I have been the promotor of the students below. The credits for supervision and guidance, however, should be fully bestowed on the supervisors mentioned below, and not be accredited to me.

Assistant professor at Erasmus University Rotterdam.
dr. Ting Wang Essays on empirical market microstructure (completing), supervised by Albert J. Menkveld.
