Drs. Maria - Hendrike Peetz
Maria-Hendrike is a PhD student at the Information and Language Processing Systems (ILPS) group at University of Amsterdam.
She works on temporal information retrieval for social media. She is a graduate of Cognitive Science (University of Osnabrück) and Artificial Intelligence (University of Amsterdam) in summer 2009. She strives to provide role models and networking opportunities to (young) women by co-organizing the Amsterdam Girl Geek Dinners (GGD).
Her expertise is on the boundary between human and artificial intelligence. She has a passion for finding and representing information buried within huge collections of documents. Her current interest is on (micro)-blogs and other temporally ordered collections. She tries to bridge human information retrieval and search engine technologies. She applies this knowledge to Online Reputation Management. Hendrike has been through the process finding and keeping sponsors for a non-profit event (the GGD). Part of this involves balancing finances with creative ideas. She works on undermining the old-boys network in the Netherlands by creating and fostering networks with a greater fraction of women. She is a finalist for the Google EMEA Anita Borg Memorial Scholarship 2012.
