I work at Leiden University and the University of Amsterdam. I am an assistant professor at LIACS, the Leiden computer science department and researcher in the CORPNET computational social science group in Amsterdam.
My main fundamental research interest is computational network science. I focus on methods and algorithms for knowledge discovery from (social) network data. Through various projects, I also work on real-world applications, e.g., corporate networks, networks in economics, finance, science, infrastructure and online media.
