I obtained my PhD in Information Systems in 2013 at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands. I am a visiting researcher at the Queensland University of Technology (Australia) and University of Tartu (Estonia).

In 2015, I joined Data61 (formerly NICTA), where I work as a Senior Research Scientist in business processes and artificial intelligence.

My research experience covers artificial intelligence, business process compliance, process mining and knowledge-intensive business processes. I'm currently working on automated generation of business processes from regulations and business rules, in order to ensure continuous compliance. In addition, I'm working on automated runtime anticipation of disruptions in business processes and declarative variability management.

Since May 2018, I am the Team Leader of the Business Processes and Legal Informatics team in the Software Systems Research Group.
