I work as a data scientist and lecturer at the department of Psychology of Conflict, Risk & Safety at the University of Twente and I’m the owner of the software development company Rocket Program. With my work I combine behavioral science with programming.
I translate research questions into the right data-analysis and explain complex findings in understandable terms. For instance, I worked for a four-year research project with machine learning techniques such as PCA, programmed and published my own R software to analyze GPS data, and translated my findings for a non-expert audience. I’m always eager to learn new data analysis methods. As a case in point, I took Python and R courses in (un)supervised machine learning, natural language processing, deep learning, and more. Also, I enjoy working in teams, because I believe that feedback is important for personal and professional development, and I like sharing memorable moments with others.
