I have a background of Language and Speech technology and I’m still working as a researcher of HLT at the University of Twente. Moreover, I’m “head of Imagination” at Telecats: an Enschede based software company wotking in applied Speech Technology.

In the CLARIAH-programme I’m working on different issues such as:

  • the dissemination of the idea of an infrastructure for the humanities
  • how to get more actual users of this infrastructure
  • how to get to know what those users actually want
  • showing the world that the infrastructure is working
