My research explores the methodological benefits of advances in data science for the sociological endeavour. I integrate novel data sources and advanced analytical techniques to invigorate and synthesize classic sociological fields of endeavour.                                         

During my undergrad I combined a B.A. in Art History with a B.Sc. in Econometrics at the University of Amsterdam. I did M.Sc’s in both Econometrics and Sociology, at the University of Amsterdam and University of Oxford respectively. During my studies I’ve founded the Analytics Academy, a non-profit institution for Econometrics students to help NGO’s and cultural institutions in the Amsterdam areas through their quantitative know-how. I’ve also founded two data science consulting firms, Delph and Apadana, through which I’ve helped companies put their data to good use.
