I am an expert in text mining and text classification. As a project leader in biomedical informatics in the biomina research center (http://www.biomina.be/) at the Antwerp University Hospital (since January 2012), I focus on the development of text mining applications hospital-wide.
My PhD dissertation (2005-2010) was about computational stylometry, viz. the computational analysis of writing style, and its applications in authorship attribution and personality prediction. The focus of my research was particularly on the stability of state-of-the-art methods when applied on a large scale.
Since my PhD (after 2010), I have been involved in the setting up of a project in large-scale social media monitoring. I also taught MA courses on computational semantics and discourse at the University of Antwerp and the Universite Libre de Bruxelles.
