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.

|I’m leading the Digital Humanities Lab (DHLab) at KNAW Humanities Cluster. Until September 2017, I worked on developing NLP tools within CLARIAH WP3, now I'm putting them to the test in the SERPENS pilot and ADAH EviDENCE projects. Besides that, DHLab is working on increasing visibility and advancing digital humanities research at the Humanities Cluster.|
