I am a postdoctoral researcher with the Human Media Interaction group of the University of Twente. I am interested in various areas of information retrieval and natural language processing.
After receiving my PhD degree in 2010, I joined the Database Group of the University of Twente as a postdoctoral researcher, where I worked on distributed information retrieval. Since 2012, I have worked for the Meertens Insitute in Amsterdam and the Human Media Interaction group as part of the FACT (Folktales As Classifiable Text) project. In this project I am researching techniques to (semi) automatically assign metadata to Dutch folktales collected in the Dutch folktale database.
