Description

I'm currently working at Yahoo! Research as a Reseacher and Data Architect for Yahoo! Search, with a focus on applying semantic technologies to search (semantic search).

Before joining Yahoo!, I have received a Ph.D (cum laude) from the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. During my Ph.D., I worked on mining social networks from the Web, and applying semantic technologies to represent, manage, and reason with social network data.
