I work as an assistant professor at Eindhoven University of Technology, in the Department of Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences (IE&IS), capacity group Information Systems. I received a PhD in Computer Science in 2002 from the University of Twente. Before, I received an MSc in Computer Science (1998), with distinction, also from the University of Twente. In 2002/2003, I was a visiting PostDoc at CRP Henri Tudor and LIASIT, Luxembourg. In 2012, I was a visiting scholar at IBM Watson Research Center

I do research and teach in the area of data-driven business process management for knowledge-intensive processes, i.e. business processes performed by knowledge workers. The research methodology I use is design science. Models and modeling languages play an important role. My research is embedded in the Business Process Management and Smart Mobility clusters of the IS group.
