Scientific Staff Member, MT Member, Theme coordinator, Information Access Group.
I am Coordinator of the Information Theme, a member of the institute's management team and a member of the Information Access research group.
My current research includes creating linked-data driven, user-centric applications for exploring media content and investigating user-centric interaction design in the context of developing technologies. I am currently working on EU FP7 projects LinkedTV, on creating links from broadcast audiovisual media automatically, and Fish4Knowledge, investigating user interfaces for exploring repositories of fish videos for biologists. Previous projects include EventMedia within the PetaMedia network of excellence, K-Space NoE and MultimediaN/E-Culture. Previous research interests include document models for hypermedia and synchronized multimedia on the Web (SMIL).
I edited the booklet More Women in Informatics Research & Education on behalf of Informatics Europe, the association of computer science departments and research laboratories in Europe and neighbouring areas. I am currently a board member and was general chair of ECSS 2013, the annual event for deans, department chairs and senior faculty of Informatics Europe members. I am part-time professor of multimedia interaction at the University of Amsterdam, at the Informatics Institute.
I was the action line leader, from 2011-2012, of ICT-mediated Human Activity of EIT ICT Labs, whose goal is to accelerate European ICT innovation by bringing people together from different countries, disciplines and organizations. I was the main organiser of SSMS10, the 5th Summer School on Multimedia Semantics. I co-edited a special issue of the Multimedia Systems Journal on the canonical processes of media production. I was co-programme chair for SAMT 2008. I co-edited a special issue for IEEE Intelligent Systems on AI and Cultural Heritage (March/April 2009 24(2) pp23-25). Steven Pemberton and I co-edited a special issue of ERCIM News on The Future Web. I am a member of the editorial board for the Journal of Web Semantics and the New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia.
I run the Generating and viewing links in video project week of User System Interaction at the TU/e.
