I am one of the technology track leaders of WP3 and team leader of the CLARIAH team at Radboud University, Nijmegen. I am professor of Language and Speech Technology and Research Director at the Centre for Language Studies at Radboud University. In my research I develop machine learning and language technology. Most of my work involves the intersection of the two fields: computers that learn to understand and generate natural language. Specific interests include memory-based learning, language modelling, the relation between written and spoken language, text mining, the Dutch language, computational humanities, and cultural heritage.
Aside from my activities in CLARIAH, I participate in the NWO research infrastructure project Nederlab (https://www.nederlab.nl/), the NWO ‘gravity’ project Language in Interaction (https://www.languageininteraction.nl/), the H2020 projects FutureTDM (http://www.futuretdm.eu/) and TraMOOC (http://tramooc.eu/), the NWO Creative Industry project Discosumo (http://discosumo.ruhosting.nl/), and several other research projects - see my personal webpage for more information.
