I am Professor and Chair of Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence with the Department of Sustainable Design Engineering of the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE); and part-time professor with the Department of Software Technology of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science (EEMCS) of Delft University of Technology.
I lead the Urban Data Science team at the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions. I am an active member of the Delft Data Science and the Leiden-Delft-Erasmus BOLD (Big, Open and Linked Data) Cities initiatives.
My research lies at the intersection of machine learning, human computation, andh user modeling. My team and I study and build novel Human-Centred Artificial Intelligence methods and tools that combine the cognitive and reasoning abilities of individuals and crowds, with the computational powers of machines, and the value of big amounts of heterogeneous data.
My work has been supported through funding from TU Delft, AMS, 4TU, NWO, NWA, SurfSara, H2020, EIT Digital, IBM, KPN, Cognizant, and Telecom Italia.
