Personal profile

Research interests

I am a Full Professor of Explainable Artificial Intelligence at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands, and a Guest Professor at TU Delft. I lead and contribute to several projects in the field of human-computer interaction in artificial advice-giving systems, such as recommender systems; specifically developing the state-of-the-art for automatically generated explanations (transparency) and explanation interfaces (recourse and control). These include projects a EU Marie-Curie ITN on Interactive Natural Language Technology for Explainable Artificial Intelligence. Currently, I am representing Maastricht university as a Co-Investigator in the ROBUST consortium to carry out long-term (10-years) research into trustworthy artificial intelligence. I am also a co-lab director of the TAIM lab, working on trustworthy media, in collaboration with UvA and RTL. I regularly shape local and international scientific research programs (e.g., on steering committees of journals, or as program chair of conferences), and actively organize and contribute to high-level strategic workshops relating to responsible data science, both in the Netherlands and internationally. I am a senior member of the ACM.
