Since I obtained my summa cum laude PhD in management sciences (information management) in 2012, I have been concentrating my research efforts on the multi-disciplinary area of matching processes between education, labor market, and individuals. Previously, I founded the Center of Job Knowledge Research at the Amsterdam Business School, University of Amsterdam (UvA). Since then I have supervised a number of doctoral research, in the intersection of the following fields: Knowledge Management, Learning Analytics, Data Science and Organizational Behavior. I published my research in various peer-reviewed international journals and book chapters, mostly in the fields of knowledge management and education (e.g.: Organizational Research Methods, Journal of Learning Analytics (JLA), Journal of Vocational Behavior, and British Educational Research Journal). I regularly review manuscripts for academic journals and conferences in the scientific community I am engaged with (e.g. Computers in Human Behavior, JLA, LAK).
As the coordinator of the FP7 MSCA ITN Eduworks project, I have developed a multi-disciplinary training programme for graduate students. This includes the development of a transversal (e.g. writing and communication skills) and a personalized, research specific training programme covering methodological (advanced statistical methods, research design) and technical (data science, basic coding skills) courses for social scientists. Utilizing the above-mentioned training, I organized a number of summer and winter schools. Further, I worked out a complex quality management system to monitor the training progress of a multi-disciplinary group of graduate students.
