Short bio:

I joined the DDIS research group in September 2017. Before this, I did a Bachelor in Lifestyle Informatics and Master in Artificial Intelligence at VU University Amsterdam. During my studies, I worked as a functional analyst at a software development company, as well as a teaching assistant at the VU.


Research Interests:

With technology touching more aspects of our lives every day, I believe that an integrative approach to computer science is vital. With a passion for multidisciplinary projects, I am currently working on trust and ethics in AI with various levels of autonomy from an HCI perspective. My main fields of interest are human-centered AI and HCI.
