I am a PhD candidate in the project 'Information Retrieval for Information Services at the University of Amsterdam.
My research concerns the application of techniques from the field of Natural Language Processing to politcal communication research and social media analysis.
At Logica I conducted research regarding the requirements, design and social-economic impact of Intelligent Road Lighting Systems in the Netherlands.
At Ipsos I studied the methodology behind political polling in the Netherlands. I compared methods applied by different polling agencies and conducted research on how different methodological approaches to public opinion polling affect poll outcomes.
