My role as a biologist and bioinformatician in e-science is to help increase the usefulness of emerging information technologies for biology, while experimenting with new ways to increase insight into mechanisms related to structure and function of DNA in the cell. I experiment with technologies such as workflow, knowledge extraction from text, semantic web and virtual research environments such as myExperiment.

More information on the blog below (originally uploaded as an example for the 'NBIC on workflows' workshop in Lunteren, the Netherlands, March 2008).

Other contact details:

Also see my web page at the University of Amsterdam:


Structure/function relationship of DNA in the cell, e-science, automated support for modeling biological mechanisms by knowledge extraction and semantic web technology.

My background is in biology, and I am now mostly interested in developing emerging technologies from computer science and trying to make them more accessible to scientists, and as such am interested in what myExperiment is doing.

The reason I joined MyExperiment is that I believe that such an environment, when properly supported by in-text semantic technologies could drive international collaboration, e-science, but notably community annotation of dispersed biological resources, that is why we started the Concept Web Alliance, with several of the founders of MyExperiment at the table.
