Curriculum vitae

Short introduction

I am a support data scientist at the University of Amsterdam (Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences) helping fellow researchers on Research Data Management and Data Analysis. On a daily basis, I work mostly with Plant Scientists that are struggling with various (plant) genomics and other “omics” issues. To reach out to more scientists and gather a community of computational life scientists, I also coordinate a Mozilla Study Group.

Co-organizer (together with Like Fokkens) and teacher (Shell basics and Git/Github). 24 attendees. [Website link]( __2019-02-05/06:__ Data Carpentry Genomics workshop in Wageningen. Teacher (Variant Calling). 35 attendees. ## Community building and guidance Since 2017, I coordinate a small group of biologists willing to make progress in scientific programming (data visualisation, genomics, statistics, etc.). It is called "Amsterdam Science Park Study Group" and is officially linked to the [Mozilla Science Lab]( organisation. I make sure that regular one-hour sessions take place (every two weeks) and participate in lesson development. Sessions can also be longer (afternoons) to dive further into a topic of interest. Furthermore, I regularly organise two-day Carpentries Foundation workshop as part of the Amsterdam Study Group activities. More info here:
