About me

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, which deals with algorithms for knowledge discovery from network data. Through various projects, I also work on real-world applications, in particular on corporate networks, but also networks in economics, finance, science and infrastructure.

I supervise bachelor, master and PhD students, and teach courses on business intelligence, process mining, competitive programming and social network analysis.
