In brief

I am an Assistant Professor with the Information Technology group at Wageningen University, in the Netherlands. I teach Data Management, Models for ecological systems and Software engineering.

My research interests are about ecoinformatics, intelligent information systems, decision support systems, knowledge engineering, metadata and ontologies and machine learning.

Since 2010, I serve as an Editor of Environmental Modelling and Software, an academic journal published by Elsevier.

I also contribute to the International Spring University on Ecosystem Services Modelling, a two-week intensive course organized by the Basque Center for Climate Change, in Bilbao, Spain. The next edition of the school will be held on May 2-13, 2016. Applications still open until Feb 5th, 2016!
