I am an Assistant Professor in Hybrid Intelligence at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (Knowledge In AI group).
My research focuses on creating systems that generate complex narratives through a combination of machine learning, semantic technologies, open data and cognitive theories, mostly applied in e-Science and robotics scenarios.

I will be Program Chair of the Hybrid Human-AI Conference (HHAI2023) in Munich, Germany .
Since 2021, I am Editor-in-Chief of the CEUR Workshop series (CEUR-WS)
I have been part of conference Organising Committees for a while, i.e. HHAI2022 (Local Chair), ESWC2022 and ESWC2021 (Doctoral Consortium chair), CIKM2020 (Workshop chair), Semantics2021 and Semantics2020 (Poster/Demo chair), K-CAP2017 (Publicity Chair).
I was part of the Knowledge Capture (K-CAP) Steering Committee between 2017 and 2022.
I organised several workshops, including the Application of Semantic Technologies in Robotics workshops (see here and here), the Re-Coding Black Mirror workshop series in Web- and privacy-related conferences, and the Linked Data for Knowledge Discovery workshops at ECML2014 and ECML2015. .
The furthest point I have ever driven my own car was Mongolia. It did not go very well :)
