Quantum, Atomic, and Molecular Physics, part of the Medical Natural Sciences (Medische Natuurwetenschappen MNW) Bachelor program at the VU Amsterdam. Study guide and syllabus of the course available here, additional course materials available via the VU Canvas page (only for registered students).
The Standard Model as an Effective Field Theory, PhD course at the DRSTP (Dutch Research School of Theoretical Physics) school in Dalfsen (the Netherlands), February 2020. Short course aimed to Dutch PhD students in the area of Theoretical High Energy Physics.
Quantum Field Theory (extension), part of the Master course in Physics and Astronomy, Theoretical Physics track. Topics covered include regularisation of divergences in loop QFT calculations, renormalisation in scalar QFTs, effective field theories, symmetries and quantisation of the Abelian gauge field, and scattering processes involving photons. The Study Guide of the course can be found here, with additional course materials available via the UvA Canvas page (only for registered students).
Machine Learning: a New Toolbox for Theoretical Physics, part of the Advanced Topics in Theoretical Physics aimed to the PhD students of the Delta Institute for Theoretical Physics (Delta-ITP) from Amsterdam, Utrecht, and Leiden. The Study Guide for the course can be found here and the course GitHub repository containing the course materials (lecture notes, examples for the tutorial sessions) is available here.
