About Me

Having graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Artificial Intelligence, I am currently finishing the Master's at the University of Groningen by doing a graduation internship about Automatic Language Identification (LID) of music.

Outside of my professional life, I like to play the piano, guitar & melodica, and probably also any other instrument you'd hand me. I love to take photos as well: going out for a stroll with a camera in your hand, looking to capture scenes you haven't seen before, is one of the most calming activities you can do!

Whether you're reading this to find out more about me professionally, or if you have anything related to photography you'd like to know, please don't hesitate to contact me. I won't bite 😬

Japan-Netherlands Student Conference

Every year, students from the University of Groningen and from the University of Osaka meet in one of the countries in order to discuss themes that are currently relevant, compare cultural differences and experience, and above all have fun. The theme of the 7th JNSC was: 'Education'.

Hackathon

For the entire weekend, we could do research on a huge dataset from a well-known phone sales company/webshop. We tried to answer the question whether phone returns can be predicted, even before a potential buyer makes the purchase. The answer? To some extent: yes!
