Welcome to my personal webpage! Let me introduce myself: I am a lecturer at Chalmers University in Göteborg, Sweden. I am a member of the Functional Programming division and currently involved in the GRACeFUL research project.

I received my PhD in computer science from the Open Universiteit Nederland, under the supervision of prof. dr. Johan Jeuring. Before my PhD research, I worked as a digital signal processing and software engineer at Ericsson and ASTRON (Netherlands Foundation for Research in Astronomy). I studied computer science at the Open Universiteit Nederland, and did my master thesis project at Utrecht University.
