About Me

Hi, I am currently a PhD student at the Architecture of Information Systems group at the Eindhoven University of Technology.

My research interests are in the fields where business processes meet data science. This includes researching on techniques for analyzing and visualizing event data of processes, discovering process models based on transactional data in information systems, and detecting outliers in observed process behavior.

During my research, I also enjoyed prototyping tools, collaborating with people, and conducting case studies, as they help me to understand, evaluate and improve our techniques.

My PhD project is called Privacy Compliance and Enforcement (PriCE) funded by the Dutch Research Institution NWO . My promoter is Wil van der Aalst and my daily supervisor is Dirk Fahland.
