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.

Through various projects, I also work on real-world applications, in particular on corporate networks, but also networks in economics, finance, science and infrastructure.
