Currently, I am an assistant professor at the Department of Advanced Computing Sciences and at Maastricht Law+Tech Lab (Faculty of Law), at Maastricht University (UM) in the Netherlands. My current work/research lies in the area of Social Machine Learning and includes computational social media modeling, dialogue systems (with applications in customer service & psychology), pattern discovery/network modeling from multimodal data sources and topic detection and tracking from large document collections. I like building responsible and interpretable machine learning models for domains like psychology, arts, law, etc.

I am contributing to the research themes of Machine Learning and Human Behaviour Understanding, Affective and Visual Computing and since September 2019 I joined part-time the Maastricht Law and Tech Lab where we launched inter-alia the Computational Social Media research group.

I am a member of the I-Board of the University (Chief Research Information Officer (CRIO)) leading the efforts for refining the I-strategy and the I-agenda of Maastricht University.
