Science & Engineering

I have a PhD in computer science from the University of Amsterdam and worked on research and development for both small startups and big companies. My specialities are data- & text-mining, search engines and system evaluation. Currently I work at the Future Cities Catapult, where I help building cities on top of solid data science.

Fiction writing

I publish short stories on the Urban Volcano. My first book -- 999 Abroad -- is a collection of short stories telling the tales of an Icelander living abroad.
