You are visiting my personal academic webpage.
Currently, I work both at Leiden University and at the University of Amsterdam.
In Leiden I work as a lecturer in the Algorithms and Software Technology research programme at the Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science (LIACS), the computer science department within the Faculty of Science of Leiden University. I teach a master course on Social Network Analysis in the fall semester and a bachelor course on Business Intelligence in the spring semester.
In Amsterdam I work as postdoctoral researcher in the CORPNET research group, which is part of the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research (AISSR) and hosted within the Faculty of Social and Behavioral Sciences of the University of Amsterdam. Within the CORPNET project I work in an interdisciplinary team on the large-scale data-driven analysis of corporate networks.
I am involved in organizing the Leiden Networks Day, a one-day symposium about complex network analysis covering topics from network science to complex systems. It's free and has some great international speakers lined up!
In the fall of 2016, I will for the 3rd year teach the course titled "Social Network Analysis for Computer Scientists" for master students in the Computer Science program at Leiden University. The course deals with topics such as algorithms for computing network topology, network knowledge discovery, and network data structures. Students work with real-world social network data and learn how to conduct scientific research in the area of network science.
I wrote a blog post about understanding the corporate elite through network science, focussing on the position of the United Kingdom and London in light of the recent Brexit referendum. It was featured by London School of Economics Business Review. The blog post is based on a paper that we wrote in the CORPNET group.
